Mehreen's Group's story

Mehreen is a resident of Multan, which is an historic city in Pakistan famous for its embroidery and cloth industry. She lives there in a 2-room brick house with her family in the Chowk Shaheedan area.

She is a caring lady and prefers to stay at home and carry out her responsibilities as a housewife. Her husband operates a small canteen business. He runs a canteen outside of the school area and sells chips, samosas, cold drinks, biscuits, etc. which are very popular among students. He has been in this business for over 10 years and is getting good profits from his business every month.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to further improve the business of her husband. With the loan, he will buy required items like cold drinks, chips, biscuits, etc. in a good quantity for selling to the students.

Mehreen hopes that an investment will result in good profits for her husband and that her family’s standard of living will be improved. She is a new loan user of Asasah and this is her first loan application.
