Sardaran's Group's story

Sardaran lives in Jaranwala which is a small city in Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there in a 2-room brick house in the area of Rasheed Park with her family for the past 8 years. She is married to M. H. who is 60 years old and doesn’t work. Sardaran is a housewife who stays at home and does her household responsibilities.

Sardaran has given birth to two sons and a daughter. She couldn’t provide education to her sons due to poor financial conditions. Her eldest son operates a grocery store while the 2nd one works in a factory. Her daughter studies in class 8.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her eldest son son who wants to buy groceries for the expansion of his grocery store. The bulk grocery stock will help him sell a greater quantity to his customers and earn better income. Sardaran is hopeful that through the loan investment her son will be able to make better profits from his business and become established in it.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In previous loan years, she has established a good credit behavior and never missed any meeting.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Sardaran.
