Bashiraan's Group's story

Bashiraan is a resident of Daood Nagar 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 9 years.

Her husband's name is A. and he is a security guard. She is the mother of one son who is a bus conductor. He couldn’t get an education due to the family's poor financial conditions and started work at an early age to financially support the family.

To help support her family financially, Bashiraan runs a grocery store adjacent to her home. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to buy groceries for her grocery store. She started this business 5 years ago and has managed to attract a good clientele base in her area because she offers them quality goods at cheap prices
She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 3rd loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained a good credit behavior and never missed any meeting.
