Asif Ali's story

M. Sagheer is 33 years old and lives in Lahore, Pakistan. He is a responsible father of two children. He is doing embroidery work by hand at home and financially supporting his family.

He belongs to a poor family; his whole family depends upon the generated income through his embroidery work. He has been learning this art from his childhood, and now he adopted it for his occupation. He enabled himself to be independent and earn sufficient income.

He requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase stock of thread, silk, fancy items, sequins, and pearls of various colors.

He hopes that this loan will prove beneficial for him and for his family. M. Sagheer is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
