A loan of $825 helped a member to buy cotton for reselling.


Saba's Group's story

Saba lives in Chichwatni, a small city in Pakistan known for its agriculture industry. She lives in a 2 room brick house with her parents. She is a widow and has no children. In order to financially support her father, she sells clothes. She buys clothes from different clothing shops in the market and sells to her neighboring clients.

Her father is an herbal medicine expert. He operates his business from his home. He has been doing this business over many years. He has a good experience of diagnosing diseases and giving the right herbal medicine to his patients. She has 2 brothers. The elder brother is involved in the cotton selling business and the younger one works in a private organization for a meager income.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her elder brother. He will invest the loan in purchasing cotton in bulk quantity that will cut his cost of purchasing and allow him to fulfill larger orders on time. He has been doing this business for the past 6 years and has good experience in this field. Saba is hopeful that this investment will definitely help him to further improve his business.

She is a new loan applicant of Asasah and hopes that it will be a profitable experience for her brother.

Note: In the photo, the lady who has holds a book (called an Asasah Passbook) is Saba.
