A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy fresh fruit to sell.


Zubaida's Group's story

Zubaida is a housewife that stays at home doing her household responsibilities. On a part-time basis, she also does embroidery. This helps her pay utility bills and other little household expenses. She has given birth to five sons and two daughters. She is a very caring mother who is raising her children very well. Unfortunately, due to financial constraints, she couldn’t educate her elder children. Her four elder sons do different kind of work to financially contribute to the family, while her younger children are getting their education. Zubaida's husband sells fruit from a cart. He believes in providing fresh quality fruit to his customers at good prices – that’s why he sells well and makes good profit. Zubaida is a very supportive wife who is always ready to help her husband in difficult times. She has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, because her husband wants to buy some more fresh fruit to sell. He has been operating his business for the past 20 years and Zubaida hopes that an investment will be productive for him and increase his profits.
