Abida's Group's story

Abida has been living in Sahiwal for past 15 years with her family in a 2 room brick house. Sahiwal is a small city of Pakistan that is known for its agriculture and cattle farming. She is 41 years of age and has given birth to 6 children. All of them are enrolled in a local school and getting their education except the youngest daughter who is only 1 year old and a son who is 5 years old.

Her husband’s name is M. S. and he is a farmer by profession. He owns a little piece of land where he grows different seasonal crops. He then cultivates them and sells to different shops and people for profit. His land is very fertile and he gets good crops from it every year.

Abida is a housewife who stays at home and does her household responsibilities. She is a very active lady and is raising her children with great care. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband’s business. By utilizing the loan money he will buy fertilizers and seeds to grow even better crops and make more profits.

She is very hopeful that her husband will be able to get maximum results from his agriculture business after making a loan investment into it. She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application to Asasah. She is hopeful that it will result in improving the financial condition for her family.
