Asia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase grocery items including oil, ghee, sugar, pulses and bakery goods.

Asia's story

Asia is a woman of age 43. She lives with her three children and husband in Gujrat, Pakistan. Her growing family has been facing the challenge of meeting expenses with very little income for her husband.

The idea of entrepreneurship emerged three years ago when she took the initiative to open a small grocery store to provide basic edible items at the community level. The idea worked well but she has been unable to add some necessary items at her store, including oil, ghee, sugar, pulses and bakery items, due to unavailability of finances.

To solve this problem, she has requested a loan from Jinnah Welfare Society. This loan shall help her in purchasing inventory for the grocery store and increase her income in a sustainable manner.

She is thankful to Kiva and JWS.
