Zahida's Group's story

Zahida is a very supportive lady and a caring housewife. She stays at home and fulfills her household responsibilities efficiently. She has very good administrative abilities and handles the expenses of her home with great responsibility. She also does embroidery part time for her neighborhood clients to help her husband financially. She lives with her family in a three room brick house in Lahore, Pakistan. Lahore is the 2nd largest city of Pakistan and known for its history and culture. She has been living there in the area of Daata town for past 18 years. She is the mother of 2 sons and 4 daughters. Her sons work in a factory for a meager income and her daughters stay at home and help their mother in her household work.

Her husband’s name is M. S., and he manufactures furniture to order. His furniture showroom is located in the market, and he has a good number of clients who give him good orders of furniture. Zahida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, to further expand her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy wood, nails and furniture polisher, etc., which will help him produce good quality furniture. He will display it in his show room for selling. He has been in this business for the past 10 years, and Zahida is hopeful that, after the loan investment, his business will improve further and so will the living standard of the family as well.

This is her 2nd loan application from Asasah. In the previous loan year, she established a good credit behavior and never missed any meeting.
