A loan of $700 helped a member to buy groceries for her husband's grocery shop.

Razia Abdul Sattar's Group's story

Razia is married to A. S. who runs a grocery shop in his local area. She lives with her family in the mid-sized Pakistani city of Vehari, known for its agricultural industry. She has been living in this city since her marriage many years ago.

Razia is a seamstress and sews clothes for customers in her neighborhood in order to share the financial burden with her husband. She learned her sewing skill from her mother and started working independently after her marriage. Her mother was unable to provide Razia with an education but she gave her a skill that will benefit her at every step of life. Razia is also a very good housewife. Alongside her business she deals with her responsibilities as a mother and wife very well.

Razia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan, her husband will buy groceries for his grocery shop to increase his sales and income. Razia hopes that this investment will bring a good profit to add to her family's income and that they will be able to enjoy a better standard of living.
