Khalida's Group's story

Khalida has lived in Okara for 20 years. Okara is a small city in Pakistan known for its agriculture industry. She lives there in the area of 49/2-L with her family in a four-room brick house. She has four children: three sons and a daughter. Her eldest son drives a rickshaw. The others are getting their education in a local school.

Khalida is 52 years old and married to M. S., who is a farmer. He works in the fields, growing different crops. After cultivating the crops, he sells the produce to customers. To share the family's financial burden with her husband, Khalida sells milk to her community clients. She keeps a buffalo that she milks early each morning and customers come to her home to purchase the milk.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband’s business. With the loan, he will purchase fertilizer, seeds and other supplies to get the maximum output from his fields. He has been in this business for the past five years and Khalida is very hopeful that he will be able to expand it after the loan investment.

Khalida is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her second loan application. In her previous loan, she established good credit and never missed a meeting.
