A loan of $875 helped a member to buy required ingredients for sweetmeat.


Rehana's Group's story

Rehana is married and her husband operates a business selling sweetmeat. He is well known in his area for the taste of his sweets and earns a reasonable income from his business every month.

Rehana is a housewife who stays at her home and does her household responsibilities. She also helps her husband in his business by preparing sweets for his shop. She is a very caring mother and raises her children very well. She has given birth to eight children. Only two of them are able to attend school due to poor financial conditions. Rehana has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy the required ingredients such as milk, sugar and dried fruits to make better quality sweetmeat for his customers and to increase his profits. He has been operating his business for the past eight years and has good experience in his business. Rehana hopes that an investment will be more productive for him and increase his income. She is a new loan applicant of Asasah.
