A loan of $1,050 helped a member to change the body of the auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled motor vehicle).


Parveen Patras Group's story

My name is Parveen and I've been a citizen of a city named Borewala, Pakistan, for the past 25 years. I couldn’t continue my education after 8th standard due to the little financial resources of my parents. I am married to a man whose name is P. and he is a driver by profession, driving an auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled motor vehicle). He has been driving this for the past 16 years.



I am a mother of three kids: two sons and one daughter. All of my kids are getting education from a local school. I stay at home and sew clothes of my neighbors. I sew clothes to help my husband to meet the financial expenses of the household. I have successfully repaid my two previous loans from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now I am applying again for a loan to change the body of my husband's auto-rickshaw so that he is able to continue his work.



I’m a group leader of some more women of my locality. Rozina baji wants a loan to buy an auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled motor vehicle). Khairan baji wants a loan to buy sanitary supplies to sell. Shamshad baji wants a loan to buy goats for her animal selling business. Shamim baji wants a loan to buy seasonal fruits 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: Parveen , Rozina , Khairan , Shamshad , Shamim
