Robina's Group's story

Robina is a widow. She lost her husband a few years ago as a result of sudden death. This was a difficult time for her, but she recovered her senses and started work in order to raise her 4 children. She does stitching for her neighboring clients to fulfill the basic needs of the family. She couldn’t provide education to her children due to poor financial conditions. Robina lives with her brother and cousin, who have a scrap business. They take orders from different factories and other scrap dealers and complete them to earn profits. Robina also does her responsibilities by staying at home. She is a very responsible person and tries to give comfort to her brother, cousin and children by cooking food and cleaning the home. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her brother’s business. With the loan, he will buy scrap, like used papers, plastic bottles and iron, in larger quantity. That should enable him to complete the orders on time and to earn bigger profits. Robina is a regular loan user of Asasah, and this is her 3rd loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained a good credit behavior and never missed any meeting. Note: “In the photo, the lady with a raised hand is Robina”.
