Bilqees is the resident of Kamoki, which is a small industrial city also known for its rice and other agricultural crops. She lives in the area of Tiba mohammad nagar with her family in a 2-room brick house.

She is a very active lady who shares the financial burden with her husband by selling shawls (a kind of cloth, worn over the shoulders and body) and doing embroidery works. She receives embroidery orders from her neighboring clients and fulfills the orders on time to make an income.

Her husband’s name is L. A. and he deals with rice. He has a shop in the market from where he operates his business of selling rice. He purchases them from the whole sale market on cheap rates and sells it on good profit. He has been doing this business for over 15 years.

Bilqees is the mother of 3 sons and 2 daughters. Her two elder sons are employed in a factory while the remaining 3 are enrolled in a school and are getting their education.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, her husband will buy rice in bulk from wholesale market and earn a good return on it. She is very confident that her husband will be able to improve his business conditions with the help of the loan investment.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In previous the loan year, she built good credit behavior and never missed any meetings.
