A loan of $250 helped a member to buy fresh seasonal fruits for a fruit selling business.


Abida's Group's story

Abida is a very supportive lady. Along with her household work, she manages her business sewing clothes very well. She is very skillful in her work and receives a good number of orders every month. The income she earns helps her pay for the utility bills and the school fees of her children. She has given birth to four children: two of them are studying while the others stay at home.

Abida's husband is a fruit vendor by profession. His shop is located in the market where he offers his clients fresh seasonal fruits at good prices.

Abida has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for the further expansion of her husband’s fruit selling business. With the loan, he will buy fresh seasonal fruits for selling in his shop. He has been operating his business for the past three years and Abida hopes that after the loan investment his business will grow further.

In the photo, the lady with a book (an Asasah passbook) is Abida.
