Zahida's Group's story

Zahida lives in Lahore, which is the second largest city of Pakistan and known for its history and culture. She lives there in the area of Daata town with her family in a 2 room brick house. She moved here 25 years ago. Her husband’s name is M. S., and he is a rickshaw driver. He provides transport services to his clients. She is the mother of 2 daughters and a son. Her son works in a private organization and her daughters are studying in a local school. Zahida operates a clothes business to financially support her family. She buys clothes from AnarkA., which is a famous clothes market of Lahore, and sell to her customers and generates good income. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for the betterment of her embroidery business. With the loan, she will buy embroidery material, such as beads and colored thread, and clothes in bulk, which will allow her to fulfill the orders on time and make extra profits. She has been operating this business for the past 20 years and hopes that it will grow further after making an investment in it. 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.
