Najma's Group's story

Najma resides in Ghala mandi, an area of a city called Sahiwal. Sahiwal is a small city in Pakistan known for its agriculture industry. She has been living there with her family in a two-room brick house for the past 15 years. She is a housewife who manages her household work by staying at home. She is married to M. A. who is a fruit vendor by profession. He puts the fruit on his cart and starts selling early in the morning by visiting different streets of the city. He deals with his clients very well and makes good sales every day due to the good quality of his fruits. Najma is a very supportive person. She helps her husband by arranging the fruit for him on his cart. She has given birth to four children. All of them are enrolled in a local school and getting their education.

Najma has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy fresh seasonal fruit to sell and earn better profits. He has been operating this business for the past 12 years and hopes that a loan will bring positive financial changes to his business. Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Najma.
