Jameela's Group's story

Jameela is a citizen of the city called Kamokay, which is located in Pakistan and famous for its rice industry. She is a very supportive lady by nature, and operates a schoolbags-selling business. She sells bags to different bag shops in the market and earns income from that. She started this business to assist her husband. Her business is now doing well and makes a good income which helps her in paying utility expenses. She is also a very good housewife who carries out her responsibilities well and finishes her household duties on time. She doesn’t have any children.

Her husband is involved in a bedsheets-selling business. He buys sheets from the city of Multan and sells them to his neighboring areas and in the market as well. Jameela has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy bedsheets in bulk quantities that will enable him to increase his sales and to earn more income. Jameela is hopeful that this investment will make her husband’s business more profitable and help him to afford bedsheets of a different variety, which will help to make more money. She is a new loan user and this is her 1st loan application. In the photo, the lady who is holding a book (called the Asasah Passbook) is Jameela.
