Nusrat's Group's story

Nusrat lives in Jaranwala, which is a small city of Punjab, Pakistan and famous for its agricultural industry. She has been living there in the area of Sultan Park with her family for past 15 years. Her husband is an animal seller. He purchases animals like sheep and goats in their early ages, raises them and sells them to butchers, at a profit. He has been doing this business for past 10 years and he is known for his good services. He also has a buffalo at his home and he uses it to produce milk to community clients. Nusrat is the mother of 2 sons and 3 daughters. Three of them are enrolled in school while the others stay at home.

Nusrat spends most of her time staying at home and doing her household responsibilities. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the improvement of her husband’s business. Through the loan, he will buy sheep and goats that will help him in expanding his business, by selling more animals to butchers on profit. Nusrat is confident that an investment will be profitable for her husband and will help him to provide better facilities for his family.

Nusrat is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In the previous loan year, she has proven herself as a responsible client who paid her installments on time and never missed a single meeting.
