A loan of $1,500 helped a member to buy spices to sell for profit.


Shaheen's Group's story

Shaheen has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her husband’s business. He packs and sells spices. He has good number of business contacts and earns reasonably good profits from his business every month.

With this loan investment, Shaheen's husband will buy different spices that he will pack and then sell to different shopkeepers and grocery store owners for profit.

Shaheen is a seamstress. She sews clothes for her neighboring clients. She has good sewing skills and receives regular orders every month. She has given birth to 4 sons and 2 daughters. Her second son is a salesman, while three of her remaining children are getting their education. Shaheen is hopeful that her husband will make good use of the loan money and increase his income.
