Khalida's Group's story

Khalida is a resident of Samundri, a small city in the Punjab region of Pakistan, famous for its agriculture industry. She lives with her family in a 2-room brick house in the small housing colony of Ashrafabad. Khalida is a 50-year-old widow who stays at home and takes care of her family. She is a very responsible person and fulfills her household responsibilities very well. Khalida has 4 children: 2 sons and 2 daughters. Her eldest son operates a poultry farm business. He sells chickens to different butcher shops on order. Khalida's other children stay at home.

Khalida has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Asasah to help her son in his business. With the loan, he will buy chicks and chicken feed to expand his business. This will help him fill his customers' larger orders and increase his income. Khalida is hopeful that an investment will expand his business further and will result in better financial conditions for the family. Khalida is a regular lender with Asasah and this is her 4th loan application. In previous loan years, she has established good credit behavior and never missed a meeting.
