A loan of $1,075 helped a member to buy iron to make shoe buckles.


Nagina's Group's story

Nagina lives in Lahore, a historic city in Pakistan. She has spent all her married life in the area of Yadgar, one of the historic places in Lahore. Nagina is a 46-year-old housewife, who prefers to stay at home and do her household work. She has 3 sons; her 2 elder sons are electricians by profession and her youngest one is studying in 9th grade.

Nagina’s husband has a business producing shoe buckles. He makes deals with different shoe companies and provides them with buckles on order. Nagina has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for the expansion of her husband’s business. With the loan, her husband will buy iron in larger quantities to help him produce buckles in bulk and to fulfill customer demands on time.

Nagina wants to marry her eldest son who is now 26 years old. She is hopeful that an increased profit will help her save money for that purpose. Nagina is a regular lender with Asasah and this is her 4th loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained good credit behavior and never missed a meeting.
