Shah Begum's Group's story

Shah begum is married and her husband is 46 years old. He operates a soft drink corner in the market where he sells “Dodh soda" (made with milk and Sprite). His drink is very famous among his customers and they love to come to him due to its freshness and chillness.

Shah begum is also very skilled. She sews clothes and does decorative embroidery work. She learned this art from her mother before she got married. Now she earns good income from her skills which allows her to pay the utilities. She has given birth to four sons; three of them are married while her youngest son is in 7th grade.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the betterment of her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy milk, sugar and bottles of Sprite in larger quantity to provide better quality drink to his customers and increase his sales.

He has been operating his business for many years and Shah begum is confident that an investment will help him increase his profits.
