A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy a rickshaw.

Saeeda's Group's story

Saeeda lives in Lahore which is the second largest city of Pakistan and is famous for its history and culture. She is 45 years old and is married to M. R. who is a rickshaw driver by trade. He provides transport facilities to earn an income for the family, while Saeeda supports her family through her sewing business. She gets regular orders from her nearby clients and charges between 100-150 PKRs. Her timely completion of orders and well-stitched clothes bring her customers back again and again for her services.

She has given birth to three children: two sons and a daughter. Her eldest son and daughter are in the 10th grade while her younger son is in the 8th.

Saeeda has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan amount, her husband will buy a rickshaw. Currently he drives a rented rickshaw which doesn’t make enough income for him even if he works harder and longer.

Saeeda hopes that her husband will be able to increase the household income and that he will work harder and with more dedication being the owner of his own rickshaw.

She is a regular user of Asasah and is in her 2nd loan cycle. In the previous loan year she has proved herself a responsible person who has never missed any meeting and paid installments on time.
