Surriya's Group's story

Surriya is a housewife and the mother of four children. All of them are enrolled in a local school and are getting their education. Surriya stays at home and takes care of her household responsibilities. She is a very active and cooperative person by nature. Her husband operates a grocery store in the community. Through his store, he sells everyday household items like spices, sugar, rice, lentils, etc. for reasonable rates to his customers.

Surriya has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With this loan, her husband will buy groceries in bulk to be able to sell in his store. This will help him make better sales and earn better profits. Surriya hopes that the investment will be a productive one for her husband and will improve the standard of living for her family as a result.
