A loan of $950 helped a member to buy spare parts for her sons' business.

Anayat's Group's story

Anayat is a widow. She lost her husband few years ago as a result of sudden death. It was a very difficult time for her but she never lost hope and started sewing work to be able to afford the expenses of her children. She has raised her children with great care.

Now her children are young men and do their business. She has two sons and both have a shop of automobile spare parts. They have a shop in the market where they deal with their customers and fill their need for spare parts. Anayat now stays at home and takes care of her household responsibilities and of her sons.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her sons' business. They will invest the loan in purchasing spare parts for different vehicles. The availability of stock will help them to fulfill the requirements of their customers in a timely manner which will result in good earnings. They started this business a few years ago and Anayat is hopeful that her sons will successfully be able to improve their business with the help of this loan investment.

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

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

In this group: Anayat , Umza , Saba, Shamim Bano, Maqbool
