Sheeman's Group's story

Sheeman is a widow. She lost her husband a few years ago, leaving her to care for their five children. Now her children have grown older and they do different kinds of work to contribute to the family's finances. Sheeman remains at home and does her household tasks. She is still very active at the age of 57.

She has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for the further expansion of her eldest son’s business of selling betel leaves and cigarettes. With the loan he will buy betel leaves and cigarettes of different brands. This will allow him to sell more and earn better profits. He started his business two years ago. Sheeman is confident that her son will utilize the loan in a good way to earn maximum profits for his business.
