Farzana's Group's story

Farzana lives in Sultan Park which is located in a city called Jaranwala, Pakistan and known for its agriculture industry. She came here 17 years ago with her family and they live in a 3 roomed brick house. A talented lady, Farzana operates a clothes-selling business to financially assist her husband. It has been going well for her so far and she earns a regular income from this business every month. Her mother in law is also involved with her in this business. Besides her work, she also carries out her responsibilities as a housewife very well.

Farzana is married to S. A., who has a government job with a reasonable income. Farzana has 2 sons. Both of her sons are enrolled in a local school and are getting their education. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to expand her clothes selling business. Loan Investment will help her to buy clothes of greater variety, in bulk. This will also cut her costs of travelling, as she will be bulk purchasing. She started this business 5 years ago and is very hopeful that by investing loan money into her business, she will be able to get good results from it and be successful.

Farzana is a regular loan user from Asasah and this is her 4th loan application. She has maintained a good credit record in every loan year and never missed any meetings.
