Siddiqan's Group's story

Siddiqan lives in Jaranwala, which is a small city located in Punjab and is known for its agriculture industry in Pakistan. She is 54 years old and is still very active at this age. She spends her time at home doing her household responsibilities.

She is married to G. R. who works in the field and grows rice. She has 3 sons and a daughter. All of her children left their education at an early stage and started doing work to financially support the family.

Her eldest son is 30 years old and has a grocery store business. The next eldest son is a driver by profession, and the youngest has a poultry business. Siddiqan has applied for a loan from a Kiva partner, Asasah, for her eldest son’s grocery store. With the loan, he will put groceries in his grocery store to increase his sales. He started this business 4 years ago, and Siddiqan is very much hopeful that by investing loan money in his business, her son will successfully be able to make his income double in size.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 3rd loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained a good credit behavior and attended every meeting.

Note: In the photo, the lady who has holds a book (called Asasah Passbook) in her hands is Siddiqan.
