Naseem's Group's story

Naseem is a 47-year-old widow; she lost her husband a few years ago as a result of a sudden death. It was a very difficult time for her, but she never gave up and supported her children by sewing clothes. She has acquired good skills, which helps her in receiving a good number of orders every month.
She is the mother of a son and a daughter. Now her son is a driver and her daughter is a schoolteacher. They both financially contribute to the family from their earnings.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her brother, who operates a grocery store in the market. With the loan, he will put a larger quantity of groceries in his store and increase his sales. He is well known for his good behavior with customers and has been operating his business for the past 10 years.

Naseem is hopeful that an investment will help him to expand his business and make it more profitable. She is a regular loan user of Asasah, and this is her second loan application. She has proved herself as a responsible client in her first loan year by paying her installments on time and attending every meeting.
