Khalida's Group's story

Khalida belongs to Arifwala which is a small city of Punjab, Pakistan and known for its agriculture and dairy industry. She has been living there with her family in a 2-room brick house for the past 15 years.

Her husband's name is N. M. and he operates a grocery store in the community market. Through his store, he sells daily use items like spices, sugar, rice, etc. to his customers at cheap rates. His customer dealing is very good that’s why he is able to attract more customers who purchase groceries from him regularly.

Khalida doesn’t have any children. She spends most of her time staying at home and doing her household responsibilities. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the expansion of her husband’s grocery store business. Through the loan, he will purchase groceries in bulk that will enable him to fulfill the needs of his customers on time and earn maximum profits. He has been operating this business for the past 10 years and Khalida is hopeful that an investment will bring positive financial changes to his business.
