A loan of $925 helped a member to buy furniture and stationery for school.

Saima's Group's story

Saima is 33 years old, the mother of a daughter and a son. Both of them are enrolled in a school and getting their education. She lives in a two-room brick house with her children. She is a talented lady who operates a school in the community, where she provides the services of a teacher. She has in her school a fair number of students, due to its high quality of education and good environment. Her children are also getting their education from their mother’s school.

Saima has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her school. With the loan, she will buy furniture, such as chairs and tables, and also stationery items, such as pencils and notepads, to provide a better study environment for her students.

She has been running the school for the past four years and is hopeful that through this investment she will be able to educate many more children and help to make their future bright, and so her own kids' as well.

She is a new loan applicant at Asasah, and this is her first loan application.
