Munia Group's story

Munia baji is a 46-year-old widow and lives in a city called Pakpattan, Pakistan. Pakpattan city is famous for its holy shrines and she feels herself blissful to be a part of this city. She is an uneducated lady because in her time, people didn’t send their girls to school for education but educated them in the skills of cooking, knitting, and sewing to be able to survive in every circumstance.

Munia baji is the mother of two kids: one son and one daughter. Her daughter stays at home and helps her in preparing embroidered clothes. Her son is a wall painter. He earns income when people call to him to paint their walls and houses. In the meantime, Munia baji bears the expenses with her embroidered clothes business. She is applying for a loan to buy paint brushes and other tools for her son’s business.

She is the group leader for some more women from her locality. Anwar baji wants a loan to buy material (lentils, cooking oil, and spices) for her food business. Naziran baji wants a loan to buy mason's tools. Ashran baji wants a loan to take land on contract to grow vegetables to sell. Zarina baji wants a loan to buy goats for her animal-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.

In this group: Munia, Anwar, Naziran, Ashran, Zarina
