Manzooran's Group's story

Manzooran belongs to Samundri, a small city in Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there in a two-room brick house with her family for the past 40 years. She is a housewife who prefers to stay at home and do her household work. She is very cooperative lady and always ready to help her family to overcome the difficulties of life. She has given birth to two sons and a daughter. She couldn’t provide education to her younger children and both of them stay at home. Her elder son left education and started work to financially contribute to the family. He is a driver by profession. Manzooran has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband's animal sales business. He has been involved in this business for 30 years. He buys animals like goats and sheep in their early age, raises them up and then sells them to butchers for a profit. With the loan, he will buy goats to increase his sales and to earn a good profit. Manzooran 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. She is hopeful that the loan investment will bring positive changes to her husband’s business and will improve his income. Note: In the photo, the lady holding a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Manzooran.
