Nasreen's Group's story

Nasreen lives in a small city located in the Punjab province of Pakistan called Borewala, which is famous for its shrines. She lives in the area of 447-EB with her family.

She is a working woman who makes and sells chingairs (a kind of tray to keep bread in it). She makes the chingairs with thick rope and sells it in neighboring areas and in the markets as well. She learned this skill from her mother and now she is taking advantage of it by running her own business. She does this work to share the financial burden with her husband.

She is married to M. A. who runs his own medicine shop in the market where he sells medicine to his customers. He has been running the shop for the past five years. He also supplies medicines to the medical clinics and earns a good profit on it.

Nasreen has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, her husband will buy medicines in bulk and increase his sales.

She is hopeful that her husband will be able to expand his business and provide all kinds of medicines to his customers.
