Shahida's Group's story

Shahida is 50 years old and married with four children. Her eldest son sells clothes and the second one makes shoes. Her remaining children are getting their education. Shahida herself is a housewife who stays at home and does her household tasks. Her husband is a blacksmith and makes iron boxes on order. The iron boxes are used to keep clothes and other household items. He has been doing this business for the past 25 years.

Shahida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband who will buy iron in bulk to make a larger quantity of iron boxes, which will help him fulfill the orders on time and earn more profits. She is hopeful that with the loan, her husband will be able to improve his business condition to help her family enjoy better facilities of life.
