Zarina's Group's story

Zarina is a very active and efficient lady. She helps her husband in his grocery store business which he operates from his home and sells daily use items like spices, snacks, etc. to his community clients at very reasonable prices.

Actually, Zarina’s husband has two businesses. In the morning he drives a rented rickshaw and provides transport services to his passengers while in the evening he operates his grocery selling business. In his absence, Zarina takes care of the grocery business and deals with the customers very professionally.

She has given birth to three sons and a daughter. Her sons work while her daughter remains at home and helps her in her daily household tasks.

Zarina has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her husband’s grocery store business. With the loan investment, he will buy grocery stock such as cooking oils, spices, etc. in bulk quantity that will allow him to address the clients' needs and increase his sales and profits.

Zarina is very hopeful that her husband will be able to make good use of the loan money and that it will improve his income.
