Kubra's Group's story

Kubra M. A. lives in Arifwala, a small city of Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She lives in the area named 69-EB in a two-room brick house. She supports her family financially through her cosmetics business. She runs a shop near her home where she sells products such as lipsticks, eye liners, mascara and nail polishes to her clients.

She is the mother of two daughters. Her elder daughter is studying in eighth class while her younger one is in fifth class.

Kubra has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to financially assist her husband in his business of selling construction supplies. This is her first loan. He mainly receives orders from construction companies and gets good profits by completing them on time. With the loan, he will buy construction supplies like sand, bricks and cement in bulk quantity that will help him to fulfill larger orders on time and serve more clients.

Kubra is hopeful that the investment will bring positive changes to her husband’s business and he will be able to earn more income for the family.
