Zahida's Group's story

Zahida lives in a historic city in Pakistan called Lahore. Lahore is the 2nd largest city of Pakistan and known for its history and culture. She lives there in a 2-room brick house with her family in the area named Nawaz Moore.

She is a 35-year-old lady who gave birth to 2 sons and 2 daughters. Only her daughter is able to get an education and is studying in 3rd class. Her elder son operates his own business and the younger one works in a factory. Her husband has a business selling fruits and vegetables. His shop is located in the market from where he operates his business. Zahida herself is a seamstress. She works fulltime, receiving orders from her neighboring clients and sewing beautiful clothes to earn an income for the family.

Zahida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy more seasonal fruits & vegetables to sell through his shop. He has been doing this business for over 20 years and Zahida is hopeful that after an investment, her husband’s business will grow further and make him larger profits.
