A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy a new cart for transport business.

Jamila's Group's story

Jamila is 40 years old and has given birth to three children. Her eldest son has a job while the others are studying, attending a local school. Her husband is a "loader" by trade and uses his horse cart to deliver goods to designated places.

Jamila is a housewife, staying at home and doing her household responsibilities. She is very active and performs her tasks very well. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who wants to buy a new cart because his current cart has become old and needs a replacement. By purchasing a new cart, he will be able to provide better services to his clients and earn more profits.

Jamila hopes that the loan will be beneficial for her husband and improve the living standard of her family as a result.
