A loan of $1,900 helped a member to buy products for her grocery business.


Siddiqan's Group's story

Siddiqan is married and has no children. She is 53 years old and operates a grocery store from her home to financially support her husband, who works for the city's Municipal Corporation. At her shop, Siddiqan sells everyday household items such as spices, salt, soaps, cooking oil, and sugar at low prices. Her clients are very satisfied with her good-quality products and service. Along with running her business, she also performs her household duties very well.

Siddiqan is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her business. With the loan investment, she will purchase grocery products in bulk quantities, which will allow her to fulfill the needs of her community clients and increase her sales and profits. She is very new to her business, having started it last year. She is confident that a loan will help her become established in her business.
