Surriya's Group's story

Surriya is married to H. M. who works in the fields and grows different seasonal crops. He is a very hardworking person and works full-time to get good crops from his land. He then harvests the crops and sells to different shops and people to earn profits for his family. Surriya doesn’t have any child. She spends most of her time staying at home and doing her household responsibilities. In her spare time, she also helps her husband with his work. Surriya lives in Khanewal, which is a small city located in the Punjab province of Pakistan, famous for its agriculture. She's been living in a two-room brick house with her family in the Shanti Nagar area for the past many years. Surriya has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, to improve her husband’s business. With this loan, he will buy fertilizers, seeds and pesticides for his field to get good crops. Surriya has a lot of confidence that her husband will be able to earn good profits after the loan investment. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her fourth loan application. In her previous loan years, she has maintained good credit behavior and attended every meeting. In the photo, the lady holding a book (an Asasah passbook) is Surriya.
