Margrate is a resident of Ghafary town, which is located in Faisalabad. Faisalabad is Pakistan’s third largest city and well known for its textile industry. Her home is a small one containing two rooms. She moved here a year ago with her family. She is a 48-year old housewife who stays at home and does her household work. Margrate is the mother of 3 sons who work in a telecom company for a low income.

Her husband has a business repairing shoes. He operates his business from a bazaar and is well known for his good service. He can repair every type of shoe and make it usable. Although his business requires much struggle, he is a satisfied person.

Margrate has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for the improvement of her husband’s business. He wants to buy leather, thread and scissors, etc., which will help him do his job better and make more income. Margrate is hopeful that the loan investment will make her husband’s business more profitable, which will result in a better standard of living for her family. She is a new loan user of Asasah.
