Tahira's Group's story

Tahira lives in a small city called Kot Radha Kishen, which lies in the Punjab in Pakistan, a region famous for its agriculture and dairy industry. She has been living there in a 2-room brick house with her family for the past 4 years.

Tahira is 31 years old, is married to M. A., and has a 3-year-old daughter who has not yet started to attend school. She supports her family financially by selling clothes. She purchases clothes from Lahore and sells to her local area clients.

Tahira has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to expand her business. With the loan, she will buy clothes in bulk. This will not only cut her cost of traveling but also allow her to offer more variety to her clients and make more profits. She is hopeful that this investment will put her business into a more profitable position.

Tahira is a regular loan user of Asasah's and this is her 2nd loan application. In the previous loan year, she has established a good credit behavior and attended every meeting.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Tahira.
