Sakina's Group's story

Sakina is a 30-year-old lady. Her husband’s name is M. A. and he has a construction supplies business. He sells supplies to different construction companies and to regular customers who comes to buy supplies from him. He is very good at his business dealings and receives a good number of orders every month.

Sakina shares the financial burden with her husband by selling clothes. She buys clothes from city of Lahore, travelling there twice a month, and sells to her local area customers for a profit. She has four sons and a daughter. Her eldest son works with his father in his construction supplies business while the others are enrolled in a local school and getting their education except the youngest son who is only 4 years old.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy construction supplies such as bricks, cement and sand, etc. that will help him to fill larger orders on time and to earn better profits. Sakina is very confident that her husband’s five years of experience in his business will help him earn better profits after the investment and he will be able to provide better living facilities to his family.

She is a new loan user of Asasah and this is her first loan application. She belongs to Kasur which is a small city in Punjab, Pakistan, known for its leather industry. She lives there with her family in a small home which contains two rooms.
