Shamim Akhter's Group's story

Shamim Akhter is a housewife who stays at home and tends to her household responsibilities. She is a very hard working lady and tries her best to give comfort to her family.

She lives with her family in Mian Channu, which is a small city of Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. Her house contains two rooms and she has been living in it for 20 years.

Her husband has a donkey cart in which he delivers goods from one place to another. He started this business 20 years ago.

Shamim has two sons and a daughter. Her eldest son operates his own donkey cart, the younger one is studying, while her daughter stays at home.

Shamim is a member of this group that has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah. She wishes to use her portion of the loan to improve her husband’s loading business. Now he needs a new donkey cart because his current cart has become rough and rotten and urgently needs replacement.

She is hopeful that this investment will be good one for her family and earn her husband better profits.

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

In this group: Shamim Akhter, Bashiran, Rubina Bibi, Kosar Parveen
