Zeenat's Group's story

Zeenat lives in a big metropolis called Lahore, which is a city well known for its history and culture. She is 35 years old and has been living there with her family in the area named Mughalpura for over many years. She is a widow who lost her husband as a result of a sudden death. She has had a very difficult time since then. She has no children and does sewing work to keep herself busy and make a living. She also runs a scrap shop where she sells used items such as used paper, plastic bottles and iron to different factories and scrap dealers for profit.

Zeenat has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner Asasah to improve her scrap business. With the loan, she will buy scrap in larger quantity to improve her sales. She is hopeful that she will be able to increase her household income by using the loan money. She is a new loan applicant for Asasah and this is her first loan application.
