Hanifaan's Group's story

Hanifaan is a housewife. She lives in a small area of the city of Pakpattan, named 14SP, with her family, in a small home. Pakpattan is located in Punjab and known for its sugar production. Hanifaan is a 56 year old lady who spends most of her time at home doing her household responsibilities. Her husband has a business of selling fruits. He puts the fruits on his four-wheeled cart every day and sells them by going through different streets of the city. He has been doing this business for the past 15 years.

Hanifaan is the mother of a son who is also involved in the fruit selling business. Her son sells fruits at his shop, which he has on rent. It is located in the market. He also contributes to the family income from his fruit business.

Hanifaan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan her husband will buy seasonal fruits and increase his sales. She is hopeful that her husband will successfully be able to improve his business by making this investment. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In the previous loan year she has paid her installments on time and never missed any meetings.
