Nazar Mai Muhammad Shafee's Group's story

N. Mai lives in Vehari, which is located in Punjab, Pakistan. She owns a house of two rooms there and has been living in it with her family for over 10 years.

She is a seamstress by profession. She supports her family by sewing clothes for her neighboring clients. She is a very active businesswoman and keeps herself up to date about new and coming fashions. The advantage of keeping up to date herself about new fashions is she easily understands her customers' demand for dressing and designs. Her business is going well and making her a good income every month.

Her husband's name is M. S.. He operates a grocery shop in a nearby market, where he sells the usual grocery items to his clients. As the days are passing, he is facing tough competition with other shopkeepers because of their variety of products.

Therefore, N. has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan amount, her husband will buy grocery items such as lentils, cooking oil, spices and rice for his grocery shop and increase his sales.

N. is hopeful that her husband will be able to re-establish his business on a large scale and fulfill the needs of his customers.
