Razia's Group's story

Razia is a resident of Jaranwala, which is a small city located in the Punjab province of Pakistan. She has lived with her family in the area named Kot kabeer in a 2 room brick house for the last 16 years. She is married to M. N., who has a business of selling ice blocks in his community. Razia herself owns and operates a milk selling business in her community. She has a buffalo at her home which gives her almost 8kg milk every day. She takes care of her buffalo by providing timely food and water. She is a mother of 2 sons and a daughter. All of them are young and don’t go to school because Razia and N. didn’t have enough resources to afford their education. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah for her milk selling business. With the loan, she will buy another buffalo for increasing the milk quantity and sales. She is hopeful that this loan investment will bring positive changes to her business and makes her income double in size. Razia is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In the previous loan year, she built a good credit behavior and never missed any meetings. Note: “In this photo, the lady who has holds a book (called Asasah Passbook) in her hands is Razia”.
