Fermeen's Group's story

Fermeen is a 54-year-old widow who lost her husband few years ago. In the beginning, she had a very difficult time after the husband's death but she never lost hope. She worked very hard to raise her children.

She started an embroidery business for her neighboring clients to bring in profits for her family. Now her son is 22 years old and operates a mobile shop in the market. He sells mobile phones, new and used, and phone accessories from his shop, making good profits.

She couldn't provide an education to her daughter who is now 16 years old. Fermeen wants to marry her for which she wants to improve her son's business to save some profits for buying a dowry.

Fermeen has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her son who will buy mobile phones and accessories with the loan to further expand his business. He has just started his business a few months ago and Fermeen is hopeful that an investment will bring him good profits.

This is her first loan application to Asasah.
