Rashida's Group's story

Rashida, pictured with her hand raised, is a 40-year-old woman. She is married to G. H., who works for a private organization and earns very little income. They have six children, all of whom are young. Unfortunately, her children did not receive an education due to financial constraints. Now, her eldest son is looking for a job so that he can financially assist their family. Rashida prays to God and hopes that her son will find a job very soon.

In order to support her family, she sells milk for a living. She has a small shop adjacent to her home from which she operates the business. She has contracts with different milk suppliers, who come from nearby areas to provide her with milk.

She is now applying for a loan from a Kiva partner, Asasah, for her milk-selling business. With the loan proceeds, she would like to buy milk in larger quantities, which would enable her to increase her sales and income. She has been operating the business for 3 years, and she is confident about its future growth potential. This is her first loan application through Asasah, and she is hopeful that it will be a profitable experience.
