A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy fresh seasonal fruits for fruit-selling business.


Kosar Sajid Ali's Group's story

Kosar lives in Kamoki, which is a small city in Punjab, Pakistan, famous for its agricultural industry. She lives in the area named Mor Amenabad in a two-roomed brick house with her brother. Her husband works abroad and she doesn’t have any children yet. Kosar is a talented lady who owns and operates a sewing business from her home. Her customer base is her neighborhood. She receives orders from her neighbors and earns a good income by completing them on time.

Kosar's brother operates a fruit-selling business. He sells fruit from his four-wheeled cart by going to different areas of the community. Kosar helps her brother by arranging the fruits on the cart so he sells them easily. Kosar has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, to expand her brother’s business. With the loan, he will buy fresh seasonal fruits for resale. He has been operating his business for the past 16 years and Kosar is confident that an investment will grow his business further. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her second loan application. In her previous loan year, she established good credit behavior and never missed a meeting.
