A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy rice for selling.

Shamshad's Group's story

Shamshad is married with four children: two daughters and two sons. Unfortunately, none of them is able to attend school due to financial constraints. Shamshad is a very supportive lady by nature. She operates a rice selling business. She does this business from her home. She earns good profit which helps her pay utility bills and bear other household expenses. Her husband is a factory worker and earns on a monthly basis.

Shamshad has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her rice selling business. With the loan, she will buy rice in bulk quantity for selling to her clients at a profit. She has been doing this business for the past 15 years and hopes that after investment her business will grow further and make her even more money every month.
