A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fresh vegetables in bulk to sell.

Safia Amjad Masih's Group's story

Safia is 31 years old and has no child yet. She spends most of her time at home doing household tasks. Safia lives in Jaranwala, which is a small city in Pakistan’s Punjab known for its agricultural activity. She has been living there with her family in a four-room brick house for the last four years.

Safia’s husband is A. M., and he is a vegetable vendor who gets up early in the morning to go to vegetable shops. His clients are mainly people who sell vegetables from their shops in different areas of the city. He provides them with fresh vegetables and so earns a good profit.

Safia is a client of Kiva’s partner Asasah; this will be her second loan with them. During her previous loan year, she paid her installments on time and never missed a single meeting. Safia has now applied for a loan for the further improvement of her husband’s business. With the loan he will buy fresh vegetables in bulk to sell through his own shop.

Safia is hopeful that such an investment will improve his business and increase his monthly income.
