A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy a rickshaw for a transportation business.

Sardaran's Group's story

Sardaran is a housewife as well as a working woman. She works in a factory for a low income. She also does her household responsibilities very well. She has given birth to a son who is a rickshaw driver. He drives a rented rickshaw and provides transport services to passengers. Her husband works in a private company for a reasonable income.

Sardaran has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her son who wants to buy a rickshaw which will help him provide better transport services to his customers without any time restriction. He will be able to keep the whole earnings from his work without giving to the rickshaw owner. He has been attached to this profession for the past four years, and Sardaran is confident that a new rickshaw will help him improve his profits.
