Riaz's story

Riaz is a 27-year-old divorcee. Unfortunately, her marriage couldn’t last for long. She now lives with her 3 brothers. Riaz, along with her brothers, operates an embroidery business to fulfill the basic needs of the family.

She has no children. She didn’t want to become burden on her brothers that’s why she started this business. She is excellent in her work and receives regular orders every month from her neighboring clients. She also does household work and makes the utmost effort to provide comfort to her family by fulfilling their needs.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her eldest brother whose name is Munnawar ali. He wants to buy embroidery material such as beads, colored thread and cloth because he has a larger order to fulfill due to marriage season. Riaz is very confident that her brother who is doing this business for past 10 years will successfully be able to improve its business condition after investing loan into it.

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 meetings.

She lives in Kasur which is a small city of Punjab, Pakistan. It is famous for its leather industry. She lives there in a small home which contains 2 rooms, in the area of Sheikh Bhago.
