Rabqa's Group's story

Rabqa is married to A. M. who is a farmer. He works in the fields and grows different seasonal crops. He is very hardworking, and works 8-10 hours every day in the fields. Mostly, he grows cotton which he sells to different factories on order.

Rabqa lives with her family in Khanewal in a two-room brick house. Khanewal is a small Pakistani city known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there in the area of Shanti Nagar for 20 years. Rabqa is 47 years old and has no children. She spends her time by staying at home and taking care of household responsibilities.

Rabqa has applied for a loan from Kiva field partner Asasah for her husband’s agriculture business. With the loan he will buy seed, and fertilizer to get better results from his crops. He has eight years of experience in his work and Rabqa hopes that this loan will help him get more from his work and increase his profits. This is Rabqa's third loan from Asasah. Up to now, she has maintained good credit behavior and has never missed any meetings.
