A loan of $1,075 helped a member to buy detergent for resale.


Saira's Group's story

Saira got an education up to 10th standard, but couldn’t get higher education due to her parents' poor financial conditions. She got married 10 years ago to K. A. who operates a detergent-sales business. He used to wash clothes.

Saira has given birth to four children. Three of them are enrolled in a local school and getting their education while her youngest one is only two years old. She herself is a housewife who stays at home and does her household responsibilities. She is also a very caring mother and takes care of her children very well.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the improvement of her husband’s business. Using the loan, her husband will buy washing powder in bulk quantity to sell and to increase his profits. He has been operating this business for the past 10 years and Saira is hopeful that after investing the loan into his business, her husband will be able to improve the financial condition of his business further.

She comes from an industrial city of Pakistan known as Faisalabad. She lives there in a 2-room brick house in the area of Daood Nagar. She moved here after her marriage 10 years ago.
