Zubaida's Group's story

Zubaida is married and is 49 years of age. She is a housewife and performs her household duties by staying at home. Zubaida is the mother of an 18-year-old son who does a job.

Her husband has been involved in a Punjabi food restaurant for the past eight years through which he sells traditional local food (daal chawal and roti, made with lentils and served with rice and bread) at reasonable rates. The quality of food he offers is very good and he earns a good income from his business. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her husband's restaurant business. With the loan, he will buy required ingredients like lentils, rice, spices, cooking oil and flour for making food in larger quantity to provide better quality food to his clients. Zubaida is very hopeful that this will be a productive investment for her husband and it will increase his profits.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her second loan application. Previously, she has established a good credit behavior and never missed any meeting.
