Razia's Group's story

Razia is a mother of three daughters and a son. Her daughters are studying, while her son left his education after eighth class and started work to bear the financial burden of the family. He provides movie making services to people. He has a small shop in the market and offers his services to people at parties and marriage ceremonies. Razia lives in Vehari, which is a small city of Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agricultural industry. She lives there with her family in a three-room brick house in the area named 39-WB. She has been living here for the past 20 years.

She is a very caring and hardworking woman; she carries out her responsibilities of a housewife well and operates an animal sales business at her home. She purchases animals from the animal markets, raises them up, and sells them to customers for a profit. In this way, she generates income for the family that helps her pay the education fees for her daughters.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her animal sales business. With the loan, she will buy animals like goats and buffalos, and sell them at a profit. She is hopeful that this investment will further grow her business and she will be able to manage her household expenses better as a result. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her third loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained good credit behavior and never missed any meetings.
