Tahira Jabeen's Group's story

Tahira Jabeen A. A. is married and has five children, three of whom attend school. She does sewing work to financially support her husband. She is very good at her work and receives regular orders from her neighborhood clients. The income she earns from her business helps to pay the utility bills. She lives in an industrial city of Pakistan called Gujranwala, which is located in Punjab province and known for its agriculture. She has been living there in a three-room brick house with her family for the past 15 years.

Her husband’s name is A. A. and he is a rickshaw driver. With his rickshaw, he provides transport services to his passengers and to school children. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who will utilize the loan to repair his rickshaw engine. With a fully repaired rickshaw, he will be able to provide improved transport services to the passengers and earn better profits. Tahira is hopeful than an investment will help him save his business asset and improve his business condition. She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application to Asasah.
