A loan of $1,300 helped a member to buy groceries for her grocery store business.

Mariam's Group's story

Mariam is a very supportive lady who operates a grocery store in her community where she sells daily use items to her clients at cheap rates. She has another business selling clothes, which also earns her a reasonable amount of income every month.

Her husband works on the Pakistan railway on a monthly income. Mariam doesn’t have any children and she spends most of her time looking after her business.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her grocery store business. With the loan, she will buy groceries in bulk that will allow her to fulfill the timely demands of her clients and increase her profits. She has been operating her business for many years and hopes that an investment will bring more profits and improve her business conditions.
