Surriya's Group's story

Surriya is a 46-year-old widow and the mother of four children, three of whom are enrolled in a local school getting their education. She is a great mother who is very sensitive about her children. She wants them to complete their education and become successful in life. To meet her family's financial expenses, she sews clothes for neighboring clients. She is a very hardworking lady who has had a very difficult time in life, particularly after the death of her husband. Now her eldest son also contributes to the family finances with his book selling business. He runs a shop in the market where he sells old and new books, including books for school children's classes. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her eldest son’s business. With the loan investment, he will buy books in larger quantities to sell to his clients in order to earn better profits. Surriya is hopeful that her son will make good use of the loan to improve his business.
