A loan of $2,100 helped a member to buy computers, monitors and other accessories to sell from his shop.


Sonia's Group's story

Sonia is the mother of two daughters and two sons. Except for her youngest son, all of them are in school. She remains at home and takes care of household responsibilities.

Sonia’s husband runs a computer shop where he provides computer repair services for his customers. He has great technical skills and is very experienced in his business. His customers trust his services and prefer to purchase different computer accessories from him because he offers them at a good price.

Sonia’s group has applied for a 190,000 PKR loan from Kiva’s partner Asasah. She will apply her portion to her husband’s computer shop. With the money, he will buy computers, monitors and other computer accessories such as mouses, keyboards and memory upgrades to sell to his customers.

Sonia is hopeful that her husband will be able to improve his business after investing the loan. She is hopeful she will be able to send her youngest son to school as soon as her husband’s business expands.

In this group: Sonia, Shazia, Nazaria, Rukhsana, Ruqiya, Alia Shahid, Azra, Iqbal, Zarina, Shameem Akhter, Rafiqa
