Mehmoodan's Group's story

Mehmoodan lives in a 2 roomed brick house with her family in Jaranwala, which is located in Punjab province of Pakistan and is known for its agriculture industry. She settled here after her marriage more than 20 years ago. She is a widow who lost her husband as a result of a sudden death. It was a very difficult time for her as, after the death of her husband, all the responsibilities came down on her shoulders. She recovered her senses for her children and raised them very well. Now both sons have their own business. Both of her sons operate a Punjabi food resturant. They offer a variety of food such as Nan chanay (made with chickpeas and served with bread) and Biryani (made with rice, chicken and served with yogurt and salad) and tea to their clients. They are very good people and have good business knowledge. They have an ability to attract customers with their good customer dealings and the quality of their food.

Mehmoodan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her sons business. With the loan, they will buy required items such as chickpeas, spices, cooking oil, rice & chicken in bulk quantities that will help them providing better quality services and food to their customers.

Mehmoodan is hopeful that an investment will make her sons business more profitable and will also expand their business on larger scale. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her second loan application. In the previous loan year, she built a good credit behavior and never missed any meetings.
