Robina is 27 years old and involved in the business of making "Pranday" (an ornament used to tie back the hair). It is a very famous product among women.
Her husband is a cobbler and makes shoes. He sells shoes to different factories and shoe shops. He has a good number of business contacts and receives regular orders every month.
Robina is the mother of two children. Both of them are very young and are not of school-going age yet.
She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further growth of her husband’s shoe-making business. With the loan, he will be able to make a larger quantity of shoes due to the availability of shoe-making materials. Robina will also invest some of the loan in her "Pranday"-making business in hope of getting better profits.
Her husband has been operating his business for the past six years and Robina has a lot of confidence in him. She hopes that taking a loan will be a profitable experience for her.
