Zaib-Un-Nisa's Group's story

Zaib-un-Nisa lives in Depalpur which is a small city in Punjab Province, Pakistan. Her house is located in a small colony named Fazal elahi where she has been living, along with her family, in a two room brick house for the past five years.

She has a six year-old daughter who has yet not started attending school.

Zaib is very supportive person. She shares the financial burden with her husband by doing a private job. Her husband, whose name is W. I., also does a private job.

They both are very hardworking persons. After the day job, she carries out her responsibilities as a housewife very well and takes care of her family.

Her uncle, who also lives with Zaib and her family, operates a grocery shop in the nearby market. Through his shop he sells daily use items such as cooking oil, salt, sugar etc to customers.

He is short of stock these days and therefore Zaib has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to financially support her uncle in improving his business condition. With the loan, he will buy groceries in bulk to add variety to his shop and to fulfill customer needs on timely basis. Zaib is hopeful that a loan investment will help him increase his profits by putting more stock in his shop.
