A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy another buffalo for a milk-selling business.

Kosar Begum Maqsood Ahmad Group's story

My name is Kosar begum and I am 38 years old. I am married with four children: two sons and two daughters. All of my children are getting an education in a school near my house. I own a two-room brick house and have been living in it with my family for the past 8 years. My husband's name is M. A.. He sells milk and has 5 years of experience. I help my husband get milk from buffalo and transfer the milk into milk pots. I’ve successfully repaid two loans which I took from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now I am applying again for a loan to buy another buffalo to expand our milk-selling business.

I am the leader of a group with three other women from my town. Shahnaz baji wants a loan to buy groceries for her grocery shop. Sumera baji and Irshad baji each want a loan to pay the installments on their auto-rickshaws (a local three-wheeled motor vehicle).

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: Kosar Begum , Shahnaz , Sumera , Irshad
