Shahnaz baji, 35, of Arifwala, Pakistan, married to M. Y., a wood seller for the past six years, has four children, two sons and two daughters. Her elder son is involved in a decorative embroidery business, while the others are attending school. Shahnaz baji, who operates a beauty parlor from her home, is requesting a loan to buy a hair dryer and some cosmetics for her business. She is a group leader of four other women in her locality: Waziran baji wants a loan to buy seasonal fruits for her fruit-selling business; Sajida baji wants a loan to repair her auto-rickshaw (a local three-wheeled motor vehicle); Muniran baji wants a loan to buy iron to make iron rods for sale; Kalsoom baji wants a loan to buy vehicle wheels to sell. This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each investing in her own business while at the same time guaranteeing one another's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.
