Shahnaz's Group's story

Shahnaz is a housewife who stays at home and does her household responsibilities. She is also a very caring mother who is bringing up her children very well.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah because her son wants to improve his mobile phone selling business. He has a shop in the market where he sells new and used mobile phones and mobile phone accessories. Through his shop, he offers mobile phones in different price ranges, which helps him target every kind of client. With the loan, he will buy mobile phones and mobile accessories to put in his shop to sell and earn good profits. He has been doing this business for the past six years and Shahnaz is hopeful that a loan will help him do his business better. She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application to Asasah.

Shahnaz lives in Kasur, which is a small city in Punjab, Pakistan known for its leather industry. She has been living there in a small two-room home in the area of Pakka Qilah for the past 10 years.
