A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy goats.


Shamim's Group's story

Shamim is a widow who lost her husband a few years ago. It was a very difficult time but she never lost hope and worked very hard to raise her only son who is now 25 years old. Her son is involved in a livestock business. He purchases goats and sheep when they are young, raises them and sells them to butchers. Shamim is 56 years old and performs her daily routine tasks by staying at home.

Shamim has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her son because he wants to buy some goats to expand his business. This will help him increase his sales by fulfilling the demand of the clients and earn a better income. Shamim is very hopeful that his business will be improved further after investing loan money into it. She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application to Asasah.
