A loan of $975 helped a member to buy spare parts to resell.

Atiya Abdul Latif Group's story

My name is Atiya and I’m a 36 year old married lady. I own a two room brick house in a city named Arifwala, Pakistan. I’ve been living in this city for the past 5 years. My husband's name is A. L., who has a business f selling spare parts, and has 20 years of experience in this business. He buys spare parts from a big bazaar named “Bilal Ganj” and sells them in his own city.

I’m a mother of four sons and one daughter. All of my sons work as welders in a workshop. My daughter is 12 years old, and she stays at home to help me sew clothes. I am trying to transferring this skill to my daughter so that she is able to sew dresses independently. I do this work to provide some income for the family and to lessen the financial burden on my husband. I have successfully repaid my two loans from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now I am applying again for a loan to buy more spare parts to expand my husband’s business.

I’m a group leader of a few more women of my locality. Razia baji wants a loan to buy groceries for her grocery shop. Hamidan baji wants a loan to buy petrol to resell. Razia baji wants a loan to pay the installments of her auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled motor vehicle). Parveen baji wants a loan to buy vegetables to resell.

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: Atiya, Razia, Hamidan, Razia, Parveen
