Rashida's Group's story

Rashida lives in Mian Channu, a small city in the Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there with her family in a 4-room brick house for the past 4 years.

Rashida is recently married and does not yet have children. She is an active lady who stays at home to perform her duties as a housewife. Her husband has an animal-selling business. His business grows busier during the Muslim festival of Eid-ul-Azha because many people purchase animals to slaughter. At other times, he sells his animals to butchers. Rashida supports her husband by taking care of his animals, giving them timely food and water.

Rashida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to help her husband improve his animal-selling business. With the loan, he will buy a cow and goats to sell to butchers for profit. Rashida's husband has been doing his business for past 4 years and she hopes that through this loan investment his business will grow further.

Rashida is a new loan applicant and hopes that it will be a profitable experience for her. Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Rashida.
