Robina's Group's story

Robina belongs to Pakpattan which is a small city in Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there in the area of Shakar Gunj with her family for the past five years. She is 43 years old, married to M. A. who is involved in a scrap business. He provides scrap to different factories and to other scrap dealers on order.

Robina supports her husband financially by doing sewing for her neighboring clients. She learnt this art before her marriage and earns good profits from her skills now every month. She is the mother of two sons and two daughters. Her elder son works in a vegetable market as a vegetable vendor while her younger son works in a welding shop for a low income. Both of her daughters are getting an education.

Robina has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who wants to buy scrap such as plastic bottles, used paper, etc. in bulk to fulfill the demands of his clients and to make more profits.

Robina is hopeful that her husband who just started this business a year ago will be able to establish it with the help of a loan investment.
