Zareena M. Mushtaq Group's story

Zareena baji is a 45 years old married woman and resides in a city named Kot Radha Kishan which is 24 km away from the city of Kasur, Pakistan. Her husband name is M. M. who is a delivery man. He delivers fruit and vegetables from one place to another. She is the mother of nine children: five sons and four daughters. Her elder son works in a factory. The next is a tailor. The others are free and don’t do anything. Zareena baji keeps her daughters busy in embroidery. Her daughters make embroidered cloth and Zareena baji sells it in the cloth market. She successfully repaid her two loans from Asasah (a microfinance institution in Pakistan). Now she is applying for a loan to buy a donkey cart for her husband because the old one is wearing down. She is a group leader of a few women. Bushra baji and Zubaida baji each want a loan to repair their vehicle named “Shahzore” for loading and transporting. Bashiran baji wants a loan to buy rice to resell. Nasreen baji wants a loan to buy vegetables for her vegetable selling business. Jeo baji wants a loan to buy a buffalo for her milk selling business. 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.
