A loan of $975 helped a member to buy latest repairing tools for bicycle repairing business.

Aasia's Group's story

Aasia lives in a small city in the Punjab province of Pakistan, called Khanewal. She shares a two-room brick house in the Christian Colony area with her husband and five children. She shifted here after her marriage.
Her husband's name is J. N., and he has a bicycle repair business. His shop is located in the market and he has a good number of clients who prefer his services because of the quality of his work.
Aasia (who is holding the loan book in the photo) supports her family by doing sewing at her home. She receives regular orders from her neighborhood clients, and produces quality work. She is also a housewife and does her household responsibilities very well.
Three of her five children are enrolled in school and are getting their education. The other two are too young for school.
She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy the latest repairing tools to offer better quality services to his clients.
Aasia is hopeful that after investing the loan, her husband’s business will grow further and his income will be increased.
This is her second loan application to Asasah. During the period of the previous loan, she always paid her instalments on time and never missed a single meeting.
