Khatoon's Group's story

Khatoon, wife of M. A., resides in the mid-sized city Vehari in Pakistan. Vehari city is famous for its agricultural industry.
Khatoon is a talented 28-year-old lady. She not only manages her household responsibilities but also handles her embroidery business well. She does this work to supplement the income of her family. She crafts beautiful designs on clothes and sells to neighboring areas and also in the clothes shops. She completes each dress in three days time and earns good money from it. Each dress brings in a profit of almost 400-500 Pakistani rupees (PKR) which helps her to pay off the utilities. Her husband has a business selling groceries and runs a grocery shop in the market. Although he doesn't have a big shop, he thinks that he is lucky enough that people come to him to buy groceries. He welcomes his clients with a good smile and treats them well.

Khatoon has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With the loan, her husband will put more groceries in his shop and fulfill the requirements of his customers.
