Batool's Group's story

Batool belongs to Okara, a small city in Pakistan known for its agricultural industry. She lives there in the small colony named Tariq with her family in a two-room brick house for past many years.

She is 56 years old and is married to A. R.. They have three sons, one of whom does embroidery work to financially contribute to the family. Batool's husband has a business of selling vegetables. His shop is located in the market and he is well known in the area for selling fresh quality vegetables. Batool is a homemaker and a very good administrator. She manages her household expenses very well and manages her household work by staying at home.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her elder son’s business of embroidery. With the loan, he will purchase embroidery material such as beads, colored thread and clothes in bulk that will help him in completing orders on time and will allow him to produce better quality embroidered clothes.

He is operating this business for past eight years and Batool is very hopeful that her son’s business will be expanded further after buying embroidery material in bulk with the loan. Batool is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her fifth loan application. In the previous loan years, she has maintained a good credit behavior and never missed any meeting.
