Bushra's Group's story

Bushra belongs to Jaranwala, which is a small city of Punjab, Pakistan, famous for its agricultural industry. She has been living there in a two-room brick house with her family for the past 12 years.

Bushra is a housewife who stays at home and does her household responsibilities. She has four children and all of them are enrolled in a local school and getting their education. She is married to A. A., who sells crockery. He operates his business on a four-wheeled cart and sells by visiting different places of the city.

Bushra has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to expand her husband's business. Through the loan, he will buy crockery of plastic and glass in bulk quantity to sell to more customers and to earn better. Bushra is hopeful that an investment will help him run his business better and increase his profits. He has been running this business for the past five years and Bushra has a lot of confidence in him.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her third loan application. She is a very responsible loan user and has maintained a good credit record by paying her installments on time.
