A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables for selling.

Bashiraan's Group's story

Bashiraan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the improvement of her husband’s fruit and vegetable shop. He has been operating his shop for the past four years and provides fresh, quality products to his clients at reasonable rates.

With the loan, he will buy fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables in bulk to put in his shop for selling.

Bashiraan herself is a housewife and does her household responsibilities. She also supports her husband by cleaning the fruits and vegetables with water every day before her husband takes them to his shop for selling.

She also knows the art of sewing and works as a seamstress on a part-time basis. She is the mother of three children; all of them are enrolled in a local school and are getting their education.

She is very hopeful that after the loan investment, her husband will be able to expand his business and earn better profits that will help her children continue their education and also enhance the living standards of her family.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her third loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained good credit behavior and has never missed any meetings.
