Rashida Bibi's Group's story

Rashida bibi is 44 years old, married, and has six children. All of her kids are boys. Besides her eldest son the other are getting their education from a nearby school.

Rashida herself is a caring housewife who manages the household and works by staying at home. She loves to take care of her family. She prepares good and tasty food for her family and makes the utmost effort to provide comfort to them by fulfilling their needs.

Rashida's husband has a food stall in the community where he serves his customers samosas (a Punjabi food item prepares with flour and filled with potatoes, served with sweets and yogurt). His samosas are very famous among his community and he makes good sales every month. Rashida also helps him make samosas for his stall.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband's business. He will invest the loan in buying ingredients such as potatoes, cooking oil, spices etc. for preparing samosas in larger quantities.

She is very hopeful about her husband's business growth after this loan investment.
