Sofia's Group's story

Sofia is 21 years old, married, and has one son. She owns a small, two-roomed house where she has lived with her family for over five years. Her house is situated in the Pakistani city of Multan, famous for its shrines and sweetmeats.

Sofia is a very talented lady. She owns and operates a sewing business in order to share the financial burden with her husband. She is good at her art and gets regular orders from her neighbors. She earns approximately 3,500 to 4,000 PKR from her work, which enables her to pay for the utilities.

Sofia's husband is A. M.. He runs a scrap shop in the market where he deals with rough and old items, such as wooden cupboards, book shelves etc. He has been doing this work for over four years. Sofia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband. With the loan, he will buy scrap for his scrap business and increases his profit on it. Sofia is on her second loan and has proved to be a responsible borrower during her previous loan term.
