Rashida's Group's story

Rashida S. M. lives in Pakpattan, which is a small city in Pakistan known for its sugar and agriculture industry. She lives there with her family in the area of Peer Karian. She is 25 years old and married. She supports her family financially by making paranday, an ornament used to tie-back hair. She earns reasonable profits from her business, which helps her pay the utility bills. Her husband is a carpenter by profession and manufactures furniture on order. He runs a shop in the market where he fulfills the demands of his customers by making their desired furniture. He has been in this business for over six years.

Rashida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy woods, nails, and furniture polisher in large quantities, which will enable him to manufacture furniture and earn more money. Rashida is hopeful that her husband will be able to gain maximum profits from his business after the loan investment. 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 a meeting.
