Siddiqan's Group's story

Siddiqan is a resident of Jaranawala which is located in Punjab province of Pakistan. She has been living there with her family for the past 25 years. Her husband's name is A. L. and he operates a donkey cart with which he provides loading/unloading services to his clients. He has a good reputation among his clients due to timely delivery of the products to the designated places.

Siddiqan herself is a housewife as well as a working woman. Besides her household work, she operates a dairy business at her home. She keeps three buffaloes and 2 goats at her home. She takes care of them and sells their milk to her community clients. She is a mother of seven children. Her eldest son has a construction supplies business while her elder daughter weaves carpets. She is very skillful and weaves beautiful carpets which sell in a very good price range.

Siddiqan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to help her husband in improving his loading business. Using the loan, he will buy a new cart that will help him put more loads on his cart and provide better services to his customers. Basically, his old cart has become rough and doesn’t carry heavy loads. He has been operating this business for the past 10 years and Siddiqan is hopeful that her husband will make full use of loan money and improve his business.

She is a new loan user of Asasah and hopes that it will be a profitable experience for her family.
