A loan of $1,650 helped a member to buy gum and hard paper for making and selling paper boxes.

Shameem's Group's story

Shameem is 41 years old and has four sons and two daughters. Her eldest son has a Punjabi food-selling business, which is called Samosay (made with potatoes and grum flour) while the other three are studying. Her two younger children are very young and they stay at home.

Shameem herself is a seamstress and sews clothes for her neighboring clients to financially support her family.

Shameem has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the expansion of her husband’s business. He makes hard paper boxes.

With the loan, he will purchase hard paper and gum in larger quantity for preparing boxes in larger number and increase his profits by selling them.

He is very experienced in his business and Shameem is confident that his business will be in a better position after the loan.

She is confident about the bright future of her family as a result of a loan investment
