A loan of $950 helped a member to buy inventory in bulk for a grocery store.


Naseem's Group's story

Naseem has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s grocery store business. His shop is located in the market. He has been involved in this business for past eight years. Now because there are more grocery stores in the same street he is facing tough competition which is affecting his sales. To overcome this problem, he has decided to sell grocery items in bulk quantity. Naseem and her husband hope the loan Naseem receives from Asasah will prove helpful for the growth of his business.

Naseem is the mother of two sons and two daughters. None of them could get an education due to poor financial conditions. Both of her sons now work in a hospital for low wages and her daughters stay at home and manage the household chores. They live in a city named Samundri in Pakistan. Their residence is a three-room brick house. This is Naseem's first loan application with Asasah. She hopes it will be a profitable experience for her.
