A loan of $575 helped a member to buy material for sweetmeat shop.


Shahnaz M. Ejaz Group's story

I am Shahnaz and I am 31 years old. I am married with five children: four daughters and one son. All of my children are attending a local school. I have lived in a city named Arifwala for the last 10 years. I am uneducated. My husband's name is M. E.. He runs a sweetmeat shop in a food market. He has been in this business for the past 5 years. He learned this business from his father. I run a sewing center where I teach children how to sew dresses. I use my income to pay my children’s school tuition fees. I have successfully repaid my two previous loans from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now I am applying for a loan to buy material (cooking oil, sugar and dry fruits) for my husband’s sweetmeat business.

I am a group leader with two other women from my town. Sajnan baji wants a loan to pay for an auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled motor vehicle). Kalsoom baji wants a loan to repair her vehicle named “Shahzore”.

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 responsible.

In this group: Shahnaz , Sajnan , Kalsoom
