Naseem's Group's story

Naseem belongs to an industrial city of Pakistan called Gujranwala. It is located in Punjab, Pakistan. She has been living there in the area of Kalar Abadi in a 3-room brick house with her family for the past five years. Her husband has a business selling vegetables. His shop is located in a nearby market where he has attracted a good customer base and offers them fresh vegetables.

Naseem is a very supportive lady by nature. She does sewing work for her community members. She learnt this art from her mother and is now taking advantage of her skills to earn money for her family. She has given birth to three children. Her eldest son is studying while others are not of school-going age yet.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who will utilize the loan in buying fresh seasonal vegetables to sell in his shop. He has been operating this business for the past five years and Naseem is confident that after this investment, his income will increase and her family will be able to enjoy better financial conditions.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 3rd loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained a good credit record by paying her installments on time and by attending every recovery meeting.

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