A loan of $1,500 helped a member to buy inventory for a grocery store business.


Shameem's Group's story

Shameem is 60 years old, married, and has two sons. Both of her sons work, the eldest one operates a grocery store while the youngest one works in a factory.

Shameem stays at home and manages her household responsibilites.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her son who wants to expand his grocery store business. With the loan, he will buy groceries in bulk to add to his store's inventory.

He has been operating this business for the past five years and Shameem hopes that an investment will make his business more profitable.

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