A loan of $1,850 helped a member to buy chickens for her family's meat-selling business.


Perveen's Group's story

Perveen is 45 years old, married, and has 2 sons. Both of her sons are young and illiterate. They are butchers and sell chicken meat. Her husband also sells chicken meat. He is 53 years of age and has been operating his business for the past many years. He is very fair in his rates and deals with his customers in a professional manner. Perveen is a seamstress and sews clothes for her neighboring clients. She is very skillful and receives a good number of orders every month. She has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for the further expansion of her husband’s business. With the loan investment, he will buy chickens in larger numbers that will allow him to fill larger orders on time and increase his profits. The wedding season is going on and Perveen is confident that an investment will help her husband make his business more profitable. Note: In the photo, the lady holding a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Perveen.
