Chanda Nosheen's Group's story

Chanda nosheen is 44 years of age and has given birth to three children. All of them are enrolled in a local school and getting their education. She is divorced and lives with her brother. She doesn’t want to become a burden on her brother. She started sewing clothes for her neighboring clients to afford the living expenses for her children and herself. She is very skillful and receives a good number of orders every month. Her brother operates a tea stall in the nearby market. Through his stall, he offers tea of different kinds e.g. green, milky and creamy, to his clients. His tea tastes good. That’s why he has a good number of clients who come to his stall regularly. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her brother’s business. With the loan, he will buy tea, sugar, milk etc. to improve the financial condition of his business. Chanda is confident that an investment in her brother’s business will be a good step towards its growth. She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application to Asasah. Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Chanda nosheen.
