A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy bicycles to rent out.


Urfa's Group's story

For the past 13 years, Urfa has resided in a single-room brick house with her family in Mian Channu, a small city in Punjab Pakistan known for its agriculture industry. A 38-year-old housewife, Urfa stays at home and discharges her household responsibilities. She is the mother of two children, both enrolled in a local school.



Urfa is married to Y. M., who rents out bicycles on an hourly basis, a business he has operated for the past six years. He also offers clients bicycle-repair services to earn extra income. Hopeful that an investment will bring better profits to her husband's business, Urfa has requested a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to enable him to buy more bicycles to rent out.



This will be Urfa's second loan from Asasah. She established a good credit record in the previous loan year and attended all meetings.
