Asiya's Group's story

Asiya is a 45-year-old woman. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of five children. Her husband owns a welding shop. He works very hard to provide for the family. The stock of his shop is almost depleted. Due to lack of funds, he is having trouble purchasing stock for the shop. Therefore, his wife Asiya, a member of 3-person lending group, has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase welding rods, iron rods, iron sheets and soldering rods for him to sell. This will be very helpful for her husband in continuing his business, and this is the only source of income for his family. Her house is situated in rural area where the sanitation system is not good, with the result that mosquitoes in her area are spreading serious diseases. With the help of his profits, she wants to buy a small house in a new location as soon as possible. She is hopeful that the loan will be really helpful for her family and her husband's business.
