Nasim's Group's story

Nasim is a housewife who stays at home and does her household work. She is 48 years old but is still very active and does her work very well. She is married to M. I. who has a business selling clothes. He purchases clothes from wholesale markets of Lahore called "Ichra" & "Shahalmi” and sells to his local area clients at a profit. Nasim has given birth to 2 sons. Her elder son operates a thread-selling business while the younger one stays at home. He is 18 years old and illiterate. Nasim couldn’t provide education for her children due to poor financial conditions. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her elder son’s business. With the loan, he will buy thread in bulk quantity to improve his sales. Nasim is hopeful that an investment will help her son to improve his business on a large scale and increase his income as well. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 6th loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained a good credit history and attended every meeting.
