Saima's Group's story

Saima lives in a small housing colony in the city of Kamoki which is located in Punjab, Pakistan, which is known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there for over ten years. She is a housewife and she prefers to stay at home and take care of her household responsibilities. She has given birth to a daughter who is two years old.

Her husband’s name is A. M. and he operates two businesses. He runs a grocery store in the market through which he offers daily use items to his clients, which include cooking oil, rice, sugar and spices, etc., and he has also put seasonal vegetables outside of his shop to sell to his clients.

Saima has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s businesses. With the loan, he will buy groceries and some seasonal vegetables which will help him in increasing his sales and in earning a good income as well. He has been in this business for over ten years, and Saima is hopeful that this investment will be a profitable one for him.

She is a new loan user of Asasah. She is confident that the loan investment will help her husband in improving his business conditions which will help her family to live a better life.
