Perveen's Group's story

Perveen is married to M., who is a government employee on a meager income. He also runs a grocery store part-time in the market, from where he sells daily use items like cooking oils, spices, sugar and tea to his customers. Perveen is also a government employee, and runs her household very well.

She lives with her family in Khanewal, Pakistan. She has lived in a two-room brick house in an area named Christian colony for over 26 years. She has a son and daughter. Her son left school after 10th grade and started a job. Her daughter is in 9th grade.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy groceries in bulk to sell in his store. He has had this business for the past four years. Perveen is hopeful that an investment will bring better profits for her husband and her family will be able to enjoy a better life.

She is a regular borrower of Asasah--this is her fourth loan application. In previous years, she has maintained a good credit record and attended every meeting.
