A loan of $1,350 helped a member to replace the tires on her husband's truck.


Zakia's Group's story

Zakia (pictured with her hand raised) lives in a small city called Kasur, which is located in Punjab, Pakistan. She is 41 years old and lives in a 2-room brick house with her husband and children. She is the mother of 4 sons and a daughter. Her 2 eldest sons are loaders by trade, and help their father in his loading business, which provides transport facilities to its clients for delivering items to their designated places. Her third son has a leather selling business in the local market, and her remaining children are getting their education from a local school in Kasur. Zakia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s loading business. He will use the money to buy new tires to replace the old ones on his truck, which are almost worn out, making it difficult for him to drive the truck and deliver goods. Zakia is hopeful that after buying the new tires her husband will be able to work better and provide better transport facilities to his clients. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 5th loan application. In previous loan years she has maintained good credit and never missed any meetings.
