Shamshad's Group's story

Shamshad is a 36-year-old lady. To support her family financially, she operates a business sewing clothes. She is very skillful in her work and receives regular orders every month due to her good quality work. In addition to her clothes sewing business, she also manages her household work very well.
She is married with four children. All of them are enrolled in a local school and getting their education. Her husband operates a grocery store in the community market. At his store, he offers daily use items like sugar, cooking oil, spices etc to his clients at cheap rates.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the expansion of her husband’s grocery store business. With the loan, he will put more groceries in his store, which will allow him to fulfill the demands of his clients and earn extra profits. Shamshad is hopeful that an investment will grow her husband’s business and allow her family to enjoy better living facilities.

She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application to Asasah.
