A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy a new donkey cart for her husband's loading business.

Shazia's Group's story

Shazia remains illiterate due to financial constraints. Her parents couldn't provide her with a quality education, but her mother, who was very talented, taught her excellent sewing skills. She has adopted sewing as her profession, and she takes care of her family's expenses.

Shazia is married and lives with her husband and two children. Her husband operates a donkey cart and provides loading services to his customers. With his cart he delivers different kinds of items such as construction supplies, furniture, and other goods to their destinations. He is very good at his work and puts all of his effort into providing quality services to his clients.

Shazia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband, who wants to buy a new donkey cart because his current cart has become worn and needs replacement. By purchasing a new cart, he will be able to carry more loads and provide better service to his clients. He is very experienced and has been operating his business for many years. Shazia is hopeful that a loan will help him to improve his business and will increase his profits.
