A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy goats and sheep for selling.

Martha's Group's story

Martha has applied for a loan with Kiva partner Asasah for further expansion of her husband’s business of selling animals. He buys goats and sheep, raises them, and then sells on Eid (a Muslim festival) to butchers for a profit. With the loan, he will buy goats and sheep to sell at higher profits.

Martha herself is a seamstress. She sews very good quality clothes that earn her good profits every month. Her customers are mostly her community members who trust her work and place regular orders with her every month.

She has given birth to five children; all of them are enrolled in a local school getting their education. She is a very caring mother and she works very hard in her business in order to pay for her children’s education.

She is very confident that an investment will be productive for her husband and will improve his business condition. She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application with Asasah.
