Nusrat's Group's story

Nusrat has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her canteen which she started 8 years ago in a nearby girls' school. In her canteen she sells French fries, samosas and tea and cold drinks to the school girls. She utilizes her earnings to pay the utilities expenses of her family. With the loan, she will buy required items such as cooking oil, potatoes, cold drinks, etc. for her canteen to increase her sales and income.

She has been living in a 2-room brick house with her family in a city called Khanewal. Khanewal is located in Pakistan and known for its agriculture industry. Her husband’s name is K. A. and he works in a factory for a low wage. She has given birth to 2 sons and a daughter. Her eldest son is enrolled in school while the others are very young in age. Nusrat is a very loving and caring mother who is raising her children very well.

She is a new loan applicant of Asasah and this is her first loan application. She is very confident about the future of her canteen business and hopeful that her business will grow further by utilizing the loan money into it.
