A loan of $1,825 helped a member to buy required ingredients for her restaurant business.

Perveen's Group's story

Perveen has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s restaurant business. In the restaurant, he sells Punjabi food items called nan chanay (made with chick-peas and served with bread) and daal chawal (made with lentils and served with rice and pickle). These two dishes are very famous among people and they love to eat these dishes.

With the loan investment, he will buy ingredients such as cooking oil, spices, lentils, chick-peas, rice, etc., in larger quantities to make better quality food and larger quantities of food for his clients. This will help him improve his income. Perveen is confident that her husband will be able to earn more profits from his business after investing the loan.

She is also a working lady and sells vegetables from her home. She charges very reasonable rates and offers fresh seasonal vegetables to her customers.

She has given birth to a daughter who is 13 years old and helps her with her household responsibilities. Perveen is confident about her family’s bright future as a result of loan investment into her husband’s business.

Note: One of the members has a sewing business; that is why she is showing it in the picture.
