Munnawar lives in Kasur, which is known for its tanneries. She has been living there in a two-room brick house in the area of Sheikh bhago for the past 20 years with her family.
She has given birth to seven children: four sons and three daughters. None of them is able to get an education due to the poor financial conditions of their parents. Her two elder sons have a business of selling scrap while the others stay at home.
Her husband’s name is M. S. and he deals in scrap as well as being involved in an animal-sales business. He buys animals in their early age and sells to butchers after raising them up.
Munnawar herself is a housewife, preferring to stay at home and do her household works, but in her spare time, she also supports her husband by taking care of his animals.
She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s animal-sales business. With the loan, he will buy animals (goats) and increase his sales. He has 15 years of experience in his business and Munnawar is hopeful that an investment will bring even more profits to him.
She is a new loan applicant of Asasah and she is confident that it will bring good financial changes to her husband’s business.
