Shamim's Group's story

Shamim is an optimistic lady who operates a business selling paper envelopes. She does this work to support her family financially. She receives orders from different shops in the market and fulfills their orders to make an income. She lives in Okara, which is located in Punjab, Pakistan, and is known for its dairy industry. She has lived there with her family in a two-room brick house the area of Sheikh basti for the past twelve years.

She is 43 years old and has five children. Her elder son has a job in a college and the second son has a construction supply business. Her remaining children are enrolled in school and getting their education. Her husband’s name is T., and he works in a medical clinic for a low income. His income was not enough for the whole family; that’s why Shamim started her business of selling paper envelopes.

Sharim has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner, Asasah, because she has a large order to fill. With the loan she will purchase paper envelopes in bulk that will help her to complete the orders on time and make extra income. She is hopeful that the loan money will prove to be beneficial for the improvement of her business, and that she will be able to manage the expenses of her home better.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 3rd loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained good credit behavior and never missed any meeting.
