Sajida Parveen's Group's story

Sajida Parveen is a 55-year-old married woman with one son. Her family live in a two-roomed brick house in the city of Multan, Pakistan, famous for its shrines and sweetmeats. She has lived there for the past 29 years.

For over 15 years, Sajida Parveen has run a business selling embroidered cloth. Her customers are from different cities such as Lahore, Islamabad and Faisalabad. She receives good orders from her customers and earns a good profit from them.

Her husband, H. N., is a motor mechanic. Together, their earnings help them to manage their family's financial expenses. Sajida Parveen is applying for a loan for the first time from Kiva partner, Asasah (a microfinance institution in Pakistan), to purchase more embroidered cloth to complete her customer orders.
