Shaheen's Group's story

Shaheen is 35 years of age and married. Her husband is a laborer by profession. She is the mother of three children. Her eldest son is also a laborer. Her remaining two children stay at home. Due to financial reasons, she couldn’t educate her children.

Shaheen is a very active lady and performs her household duties very well. She also has a buffalo at home. She sells its milk to her community clients. She is very fair in her rates and has a good number of clients in her area due to the quality of milk she provides to them.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her business. With the loan, she will buy another buffalo, which will allow her to sell a larger quantity of milk and increase her profits. She hopes that after the loan investment, her business will grow and increase her income, which will allow her family to have a better standard of living.

She is a new loan applicant and hopes that it will be a profitable experience for her.
