Razia's Group's story

Razia belongs to Pakpattan, a small city of Punjab, Pakistan, known for its dairy industry. Her home consists of two rooms and is located in the area of Khanpura. She has been living there with her family for the past 30 years. She is 40 years old, married to M. M. and has four children. Her husband is well educated, and that’s why all of their children are enrolled in school except the eldest one, who has completed his education and runs a grocery store in the market. Her husband also runs a grocery store in the community through which he sells daily use items like sugar, salt and spices to his clients at cheap rates. He is well known for his good customer dealings among his clients. Razia is a housewife who stays at home and does her household responsibilities. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s grocery store business. Through the loan, he will buy groceries in bulk to put into his store to fulfill the demands of his clients and earn better profits. He has been operating this business for the past 10 years and Razia is confident that an investment will bring better profits and improve his business. She is a new loan user and this is her first loan application to Asasah. Note: In the photo, the lady raising her hand is Razia.
