A loan of $1,750 helped a member to buy another buffalo for her son's dairy business.

Azra M. Hussain Group's story

'My name is Azra and I’m a 39-year-old married lady. I have been a citizen of Lahore, Pakistan, for the past 16 years. My husband's name is M. H.. He works in a factory for a monthly wage. I am a mother of seven kids: four daughters and three sons. My first three daughters prepare embroidered dresses. My elder son is involved in a dairy business. The others are getting education from a local school. I help my daughters in preparing embroidered clothes. I have successfully repaid my first loan from Asasah (a microfinance institute of Pakistan). Now I am applying again for a loan to buy another buffalo to expand my sons’ dairy business.'

Azra is the group leader of six other women from her locality. Razia baji and Qubra baji each want a loan to buy iron to sell. Shahnaz baji wants a loan to buy seasonal fruits for her fruit-selling business. Azran baji and Razia baji each want a loan to buy a donkey cart for loading. Parveen akhtar baji wants a loan to buy a sewing machine for sewing clothes.

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: Azra , Razia , Qubra , Shahnaz , Azran , Razia , Parveen Akhtar
