Bilqees' Group's story

Bilqees is married and has 8 children, three of whom are studying while the others stay at home and don’t do anything. Her husband operates a food sales business, selling traditional food called dhahi bhaley, which is a very popular local food made of yogurt, spices, and potatoes.

Bilqees has supported her husband by operating a sewing business for many years and now has great skills in her work with the passage of time. She has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her husband’s business. He will use the loan to buy potatoes, spices and other ingredients so he can prepare dhahi bhaley in larger quantities and of better taste. Bilqees is confident that her husband will be able to earn more profits from his business by offering better quality food to his clients.
