A loan of $650 helped a member to buy paint and paint brushes for husband's house-painting business.


Nasreen's Group's story

Nasreen lives in an industrial city of Pakistan known as Faisalabad. She has lived there in a 2-room brick house in the area of Mian Pind for the past 16 years. She is a housewife and does her household works, staying at home. She doesn’t have any children. Her father and brother also live with her and both of them are involved in different jobs. Her father is a security guard while her brother sells vegetables.

Nasreen has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the improvement of her husband’s business. He is a painter and paints houses and buildings on order. He deals with different companies and individuals and earns good income after completing their work. Using the loan, he will buy different colors of paint and paint brushes to provide better quality service to his clients.

Nasreen is hopeful that her husband will successfully be able to grow his business to a level where his family can have a better standard of living. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In the previous loan year, she proved herself to be a responsible client by paying her installments on time and by attending every meeting.
