A loan of $700 helped a member to buy sanitation supplies to sell.


Nanci Yousaf's Group's story

Nanci lives in Faisalabad which is Pakistan’s third largest city and is famous for its textile industry. She lives in a two-room brick house with her family in the area named Medina town. She is a 49-year-old widow and lost her husband few years ago. It was a very difficult time for her and her family but she never lost hope. She raised her children with great care. Now both her sons sell sanitation supplies in the market and earn well from this business. Both of them respect their mother a lot and care for her the way she cares for them.

Nanci is satisfied now that her sons are settled and operating their business. She has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her sons’ business. With the loan amount, her sons will buy sanitation supplies such as taps, water pipes, etc. to increase their sales. She is hopeful that her sons' business will improve and her family will have a better standard of living. She wants her eldest son to marry and she hopes that she will be able to help him do it very soon with the help of profit from the loan. She is a new loan applicant and hopes that it will be a profitable experience for her family.
