A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy a new cart & fresh seasonal vegetables for vegetable-sales business.


Naseem's Group's story

Naseem is a resident of Mian Pind which is a small residential area located in Faisalabad. Faisalabad is Pakistan’s third largest city and well known for its textile industry. She has been living there in a 2-room brick house with her family for the past 12 years.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who operates a vegetable-selling business on his donkey cart. He sells different seasonal vegetables to his clients and makes reasonable profits. Using the loan investment, he will buy a new cart because his current cart has become rough and needs replacement and buy fresh seasonal vegetables as well. The new cart will help him transport more vegetables to make more profits.

Naseem has given birth to two sons and a daughter. Her sons are enrolled in a local school and getting their education while her daughter is only three years old and has not started getting an education yet. She is hopeful that her husband will be able to gain positive financial results from the loan investment.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In previous loan year, she has proved herself a responsible client by paying her installments on time and by attending every meeting.
