Ulfat's Group's story

Ulfat is 32 years old and a married lady. Her husband operates a grocery store where he sells daily-use household items such as sugar, salt, cooking oil, etc. He is very good in his dealings with the customers and makes good sales every day. He is also a rickshaw driver and provides transport services to his passengers. Ulfat helps him by taking care of his grocery store when he goes away for his driving business.

She is the mother of five sons: two of them are daily wage laborers while the others stay at home. Ulfat couldn’t educate her children due to financial constraints. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband’s grocery store business. With the loan, he will purchase groceries in bulk quantities that will allow him to fill his customer orders and earn better profits. Her husband has been operating this business for the past 10 years and Ulfat is confident that he will successfully be able to improve it after investing the loan in it.
