Nazareen's Group's story

Nazareen, 34 years old, lives in the historic city of Lahore, Pakistan, famous for its culture and history. She lives in a small home with her husband and five daughters in the area of Green town. She moved here after her marriage. Three of Nazareen's daughters are students and the others stay at home because they are too young to attend school.

Nazareen's husband, M. A., is a butcher by profession. He has operated a meat selling shop in the community for the past 10 years. He specifically sells goat meat. Due to his agreeable manner and the quality of his meat, he has a good number of customers. Nazareen is a housewife, preferring to stay at home and take care of her household responsibilities. She has a part-time business selling clothes to clients in her community. She purchases clothes from the famous Anarkali market and the Azam cloth market in Lahore and earns a good profit. She does this work to help her husband financially.

Nazareen has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy some goats to help him fulfill his customers' orders and earn more profit. Nazareen is hopeful about the positive growth of his business after the loan investment. Nazareen is new lender with Asasah.
