A loan of $1,200 helped a member to buy clothes to sell.


Jia's Group's story

Jia lives with her family in Lahore, which is famous for its history and culture in Pakistan. She lives there in a 2 room brick house. She is 45 years old, and has given birth to 2 sons. Her eldest son works in a private organization while the second one is a motor mechanic.

Jia supports her family by selling clothes. She purchases clothes from the famous clothes markets of Lahore called “AnarkA.” and “Azam market” and sells to her local area clients. She operates this business from her home and earns a good income every month. Besides her business, she also gives the proper time to her household activities and makes the utmost effort to provide comfort to her family.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her clothes selling business. With the loan, she will buy clothes of different variety in bulk quantity. She expects that her business will improve after the loan investment and she will be able to make more sales and profits by offering more varieties of clothes to the clients.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 6th loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained a good credit behavior and never missed any meetings.
