Taj's Group's story

Taj lives in Jaranwala which is a small city in Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She lives there in the area of Rasheed Park with her family.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her son who runs a small restaurant in the community. In the restaurant, he sells Punjabi food items such as "Nan chanay" (made with chick peas and served with bread) and "Biryani" (made with rice and chicken served with pickles) to his customers. He is well-known among his customers for his good quality and taste. Using the loan, he will purchase chick peas, rice, cooking oil and spices, etc. to make good quality food to sell to his customers at a profit. Taj and her husband G. S. both are very supportive persons. They both support their son in his business. S. supports him by handling his customers in the restaurant and Taj helps him by making food for his restaurant.

Taj is confident that the loan investment will bring better profits to her son’s business and he will be able to increase his clientele.
