Nazia's Group's story

Nazia, age 29 (shown holding the "Asasah Passbook" in the picture), is a homemaker with many household responsibilities who resides in Fateh Sher colony, which is located in Sahiwal, an area known for its agriculture industry. She married five years ago, and she and her husband have three small children who are still too young to attend school. The family lives in a two-room brick house. Nazia has great administrative skills and manages her household expenses effectively.

Her husband is a fruit vendor who sells fruit at the market. He supplements his income as a daily-wage laborer, taking on jobs whenever they are available. Nazia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy fresh seasonal fruits to offer for sale, which will increase his income and sales.

Nazia is hopeful that her husband’s business will grow further through the investment of this loan. She feels that it will result in a higher standard of living for her family. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her fourth loan application. She has proved herself as a responsible client who has always paid her installments on time and never missed a meeting.
