Hasina's Group's story

Hasina is the wife of N. A. and lives in Vehari, a mid-sized city in Pakistan. She owns a small house of two rooms and has been living in it with her family for over thirty years. She is a vigorous lady. She operates her own business sewing clothes. She does this work to improve the financial condition of her family. Besides sewing clothes she manages her house very efficiently. She takes care of her family and prepares food for them. She has given birth to five children: two sons and three daughters. She has enrolled all of her kids in school because she wants to give them a good education. Her husband is a cobbler and makes footwear. He learned this art from his father who was a professional cobbler. He started this work twenty years ago and is now earning good money from it. Hasina took out a loan from Asasah (a micro-finance institution in Pakistan and a partner of Kiva) last year and successfully repaid it, and now she is applying for the second time for a loan to purchase materials required (leather, nails, and polisher) so her husband can make a good number of footwear and earn a good profit.
