A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy fresh seasonal fruit to sell.

Shahida's Group's story

Shahida lives in a city called Arifwala, which is located in Punjab, Pakistan and known for its dairy industry. She is married to P. who has a business selling fruit. He sells fruit on different streets of the city by visiting with his four-wheeled cart. He purchases fruit from the fruit market and starts going to sell them early in the morning. Shahida is a housewife who manages her household work by staying at home. She also helps her husband by arranging the fruit on his cart so he can easily sell them.

Shahida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy fresh seasonal fruit to sell and earn better profits. Shahida is hopeful that this investment will help him improve his business further.
