Rout's Group's story

Rout has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s agriculture business. Her husband started this business 10 years ago and it has proved to be a profitable one for him. He works in the field and grows different seasonal crops. With the loan, he will purchase fertilizers and seeds, etc., to get maximum output from his business.

Rout lives in Khanewal, which is a small city of Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She has lived there in a 2-room brick house with her family, in the area of Shanty Nagar, for the past 15 years. She is a mother of 4 sons. Her eldest son is a rickshaw driver and provides transport services to his passengers. The remaining children are young and are at home. Rout is also a very good mother and housewife. She is raising her children with great care and discipline. She couldn’t provide them an education due to financial constraints. She prays to GOD that they will get some source of income in the future. She 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.
