A loan of $600 helped a member to buy groceries for a grocery store business.


Shaheen's Group's story

Shaheen is a housewife who stays at home and takes care of her household responsibilities. She is very active and performs her duties very efficiently.

Her husband operates a grocery store in the nearby market. Through his store, he sells daily use items like sugar, salt, cooking oil, etc. His rates are very reasonable, that's why he has good number of clients in his area.

Her husband wants to purchase groceries in bulk for his store; that's why Shaheen has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah. The loan investment will help him in fulfilling the needs of his clients and earn a better income.

He has been operating his business for the past five years and Shaheen hopes that after the loan investment his business will grow further and his profits will be improved.

Note: in the photo, the lady with a book (called an Asasah Passbook) is Shaheen.
