A loan of $950 helped a member to buy ingredients to make Punjabi food.

Farzana's Group's story

Farzana is 36 years old, married and the mother of a son. She stays at home and does her household responsibilities. Her husband operates a Punjabi food restaurant business. He has good taste in his hand and good behavior, which are the reasons he attracts his clients. He also has a good number of clients in his own area who come to his restaurant daily to eat the food items (Biryani, made with chicken and served with yogurt and Nan chany, made with chickpeas and served with bread).

Farzana has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the expansion of her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy the required ingredients to be able to prepare better quality food items and to serve more clients for better profits. Farzana is hopeful that the loan investment will help him expand his business and increase his profits. She is a new loan user and this is her first loan application to Asasah.
