Gulshan Naheed's Group's story

Gulshan naheed is a 38-year-old married woman and has seven children: five sons and two daughters. Her elder son is a tailor while four others are getting an education from the nearby school and the remaining two are free and don’t do anything. Gulshan is also a very dedicated and supportive woman in nature. She runs a juice corner but her work is home-based. She has some juicer machines with which she makes juices of fresh fruits to meet the requirement of her customers. Her husband is a mason on a meager income. Gulshan has requested a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her elder son’s business. He runs a tailoring shop in the market from where he sews ladies' and gents' clothes. He is an expert in his work and handles his clients well. With the loan investment, he will buy another sewing machine and will hire an assistant to help grow his business. Gulshan is very confident about the further expansion of her son's business after the loan investment.
