Khalida Muhammad Rafiq's Group's story

Khalida lives in Kamoki, a small city in Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agricultural industry. She lives there with her family in the area named Mor Amenabad in a two-roomed brick house. Khalida is 45 years old and married to M. R.. She has a 22-year-old son. Her husband operates a construction supplies business and his son also helps in this business. Khalida's husband has run this business for over 20 years and is well known due to the quality of his items and his good manner with customers.

Khalida herself is a talented lady who shares the financial burden with her husband by running an embroidery business. She has a number of customers in the neighboring areas who give her regular orders and she earns a good income by completing them on time. Khalida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy construction supplies such as cement, bricks, sand etc. in bulk, which will help meet customers' needs and earn extra income.

Khalida is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her second loan application. In her previous loan year, she paid her installments on time and never missed a single meeting.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (an Asasah Passbook) is Khalida.
