Jameela's Group's story

Jameela lives in Khanewal which is a small city located in Punjab province of Pakistan and known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there in the area called Ahmed Nagar in a two-room brick house for the past 24 years.

She is married to M. R. who runs a grocery store business. He has a small grocery store in the market from where he sells daily use items soaps, toothpaste, sugar, tea, etc. to his customers. He started this business many years ago and improves the financial condition of his family through this store.

Jameela has 3 daughters and 2 sons. All of them are enrolled in school and are getting their education except the eldest one who helps his father in his business. He didn’t have any interest in studies and left school after completing the 8th class.

Jameela herself is a housewife, stays at home and does her household responsibilities. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to help her husband in his business. With the loan, he will buy groceries in bulk quantity and increase his sales. Jameela is hopeful that a loan investment will have a good impact on her husband’s business and makes it more profitable. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 3rd loan application.
