Bushra has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her embroidery business. She has been operating this business for many years. Her talent has become a source of earning to live a sustainable life. She does this work at her home.

Her clientele base is her community ladies and also boutique owners. Her work has found good acknowledgement among her clients. She completes each dress in 3 to 4 days' time period. She crafts beautiful designs on cloth which attracts many clients to her and she receives regular orders.

With the loan, she will buy embroidery material such as beads, colored thread and cloth in bulk to be able to complete orders on time and earn maximum profits. She is hopeful that through the loan investment her business will grow further and also improve the financial condition of her family as a result.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
