Nasira's Group's story

Nasira lives with her husband and 5 children in a small house. Three of her children are studying while other 2 are very young and haven’t started their education yet. She is a housewife and performs her household tasks by staying at home. Due to her supportive nature, her family has good respect for her. Her husband is very hardworking person and prepares snacks of great taste that sells for good price among his clients. Nasira provides full support in preparing snacks for him to sell. He then put those snacks (called Papad in local language) on his bicycle and sells by visiting different streets of the city. Nasira has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for the further improvement of her husband’s business. With the loan investment, he will buy ingredients such as spices, gram flour and cooking oil in larger quantity to be able to prepare better quality snacks that will help him increasing his sales and profits. Note: “In the photo, the lady holding a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Nasira.”
