A loan of $900 helped a member he will buy fruit and spices in larger quantities for his chaat.


Alia's Group's story

Alia is married and has five children, three of them girls and two, boys. Only three of them are getting an education, as she is unable to afford to educate all of them. Her other two children stay at home.

Alia’s husband sells a local food called fruit chaat, which is made of fruits and spices. He is experienced in making it, and it is very popular among his customers. He makes a reasonably good income from his business.

Alia’s group has applied for an 80,000 PKR loan from KIVA’s partner Asasah. She will invest her portion of the loan in her husband’s business. With the money he will buy fruit and spices in larger quantities so as to be able to prepare more quality food and earn more profits by increasing his sales.

Alia is hopeful that this loan will help her husband to make a greater profit from his business.
