A loan of $650 helped a member to buy chickens to sell for meat.

Mumtaz's Group's story

Mumtaz’s husband is a butcher by profession. He sells good quality meat and good in weight to his customers and that’s why he has a good number of people who come to him to buy meat.

Mumtaz is a housewife, staying at home and doing her household responsibilities. In her spare time, she also sews clothes to share the financial burden with her husband. Her earning allows her to pay the utilities. She has given birth to five children but no one is able to attend school due to financial constraints.

Mumtaz has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who wants to improve his business by purchasing chickens in larger quantity. This will help him fill larger orders on time and earn good income. He has been operating this business for the past 15 years and Mumtaz is confident that an investment will help him improve his business further and her family will be able to live a better financial life in a result.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 3rd loan application. In previous loan years, she has paid her installments on time and never missed a single meeting.

She belongs to a small city called Arifwala which is located in Punjab, Pakistan and is known for its dairy industry. Her house contains 3 rooms where she has been living with her family for the past 26 years.
