A loan of $1,300 helped a member to buy scrap materials.

Perveen's Group's story

Perveen is a resident of Faisalabad, a big city in Pakistan famous for its textile industry. She lives there with her family in a 2-room brick house in the area of Mai de jughi. She moved here 17 years ago. Perveen is 45 years old, married to S. A. and has 4 children. All of them are enrolled in a local school and getting their education. Perveen is a caring woman, managing her household tasks with great responsibility by staying at home.

Perveen's husband has had a business selling scrap for the past 10 years. He provides scrap material to different factories and to other scrap dealers to earn an income for the family. Perveen has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will purchase scrap such as used papers, plastic bottles, iron, etc. in bulk to help him complete his orders and make a good profit. Perveen is hopeful that an investment will have a good impact on the business and will earn her husband more income than before. Perveen is a regular lender with Asasah and this is her 4th loan application. In previous loan years, she has proved herself as a responsible client who never missed a single meeting and who paid her installments on time.
