Aalan is married to Y. who runs a grocery shop in the nearby market. He sells daily use items such as eggs, sugar, rice and spices. His sales help him to make more income. Aalan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan, her husband will buy grocery items in bulk for his grocery shop. These will increase his sales and income because he will have more products to offer to his customers. Aalan is hopeful that this investment will bring positive changes to her husband’s business and that her family’s living standard will improve.
