Syed's Group's story

Syed lives in Okara, which is a small city in Pakistan known for its agricultural industry. She is 45 years old and married to M. S., who works as an electrician. His shop is located in the market and he offers electrical repair services to his clients.

Syed is a housewife and a very good administrator. She manages her household expenses very well and does her household work by staying at home. She is the mother of 4 children, 2 sons and 2 daughters. Her eldest son works in a soap manufacturing factory while the others stay home. Only her third child is enrolled in school and studying in the 8th grade. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband’s electrician business. With the loan, he will purchase electrical repair tools to offer better quality services to his clients. He has been operating this business for the past 15 years and Syed is very hopeful that her husband’s business will be expanded further after buying necessary tools with the loan. She is a new loan applicant of Asasah and hopes that it will be a profitable experience for her.
