Hanifaan's Group's story

Hanifaan lives in Pakpattan, a small city in Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there with her family for the past 20 years. Her husband’s name is M. Y. and he operates an animal sales business. He purchases animals like goats from the animal market, raises them, and then sells them to people who require them, at a good profit.

In order to financially support her family, Hanifaan also does paid work. She packs different spices like black pepper, red-chilly powder, salt etc. on order and charges for her labor. She is the mother of three sons and a daughter who is young. Hanifaan couldn’t provide them education due to financial constraints. Her eldest son is involved in a potato-selling business. He buys potatoes from the vegetable market and sells to different vegetable shops to earn an income. He does this work to contribute to his family financially.

Hanifaan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her son’s business. With the loan, he will buy potatoes in bulk and increase his sales. Hanifaan is hopeful that through the loan investment her son will be able to take his business to more profitable position and make more income which will improve his family’s financial condition.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 4th loan application. In previous loan years, she has proved herself as a responsible client who always paid her installments on time and never missed a single meeting.
