A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy cables for a cable-operating business.

Zohra's Group's story

Zohra is a widow who lost her husband a few years ago. It was a very difficult time for her but she never lost hope. She raised her two sons with great care. They had to finish their education after matriculation and started working to financially contribute to the family. Both of them are involved in a cable-operating business. Through this service, people are able to watch different channels on television.

Zohra is a resident of Kamoki. It is a small industrial city also known for its rice and other agricultural crops. She has been living in the area of Bilal Park with her family in a two-room brick house for the past many years.

Zohra has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, to improve her sons' business because they have a large order to fulfill. With the loan, they will purchase cable in large quantity to meet the order on time. They have been doing this business for the past five years. Zohra wants to marry off her eldest son, who is now 29 years old, and she hopes that improvements in the business will help her save some money for that purpose.
