Mukhtayar's story

Mukhtayar belongs to a small city called Kasur, which is famous for its leather industry in Pakistan. She lives in a three-room brick house with her family in the area of Kot haleem khan.

She is 35 years old and married to G. M.. She has three daughters and one son. All of her children are getting their education except the youngest one, who is just 5 years old and has not started attending school yet.

Her husband is involved in a rent-a-bike business. He also has a mobile-phone shop where he sells used phone sets to his customers. He is a very responsible person in nature. He is the only breadwinner of his family so this status forces him to move forward and gives his business the right direction. He re-invests the profits in his business to earn more profit.

Mukhtayar is a very supportive and caring lady. As her husband gets busy in his businesses, she takes care of the house and children, so her children grow up with good manners and discipline.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s businesses. With the loan amount, her husband will buy another motorbike for his rent-a-bike business and will buy used mobile-phone sets for his mobile-phone selling business.

This loan investment will help him serve more clients and earn a better income.

Mukhtayar is hopeful that her husband has a good experience with these businesses and that he will definitely improve his business conditions with the loan investment. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her fourth loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained good credit behavior and never missed a meeting.
