A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy wood, nails and furniture polish.


Hanifaan's Group's story

Hanifaan is 36 years old and married with six children: four sons and two daughters. She couldn’t provide them with an education due to financial constraints. Her husband works in a government organization. His income is not enough to meet the financial expenses of the family. That’s why Hanifaan supports him by doing work in people's houses. She is a very hard working lady and performs her routine tasks very well along with her job.
Her eldest son has a furniture showroom. He is expert in making wooden chairs. Her second son also helps him in his business. Her remaining children stay at home and don’t do anything.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her son who wants to expand his furniture making business. With the loan, he will buy wood, nails, furniture polish, etc. to prepare more furniture and earn a better income. Hanifaan is hopeful that by investing the loan into her son’s business, he will expand his business and increase his profits.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her third loan application. In previous loans, she has maintained good credit behavior and never missed any meeting.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Hanifaan.
