Rani's Group's story

Rani Baji is married to Mr. Khalil and lives in a small town called Kot Radha Kishan, loacted near the city of Kasur, Pakistan. Rani Baji owns a two-room brick house, in which she has been living for the last 10 years. She has three children: two sons and a daughter. None of her children go to school. Rani Baji’s husband runs a milk-sales business: he chose this profession 15 years ago, learning from his parents who are also involved in the dairy business. Rani Baji herself is a housewife, taking care of the household and the family. She has successfully re-paid her two previous loans from Asasah (a micro-finance institute in Pakistan). Now, she is applying for a new loan to buy an additional buffalo to expand her husband’s milk sales business.

Rani Baji is borrowing together with a few other people from the local community: Sharifan Baji, who needs a loan to buy bricks for sale, Safia Baji, who will use the loan money to buy milk cream to sell to grocery shops, Hafizan Baji, who wants to borrow to be able to buy a buffalo for her milk sales business, and Zareena Baji, who needs additional capital to buy groceries for her grocery shop.

This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in her own business. The members mutually guarantee one another's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are held equally responsible.

In this group: Rani, Sharifan, Safia, Hafizan, Zareena
