Razia's Group's story

Razia is a resident of Borewala which is a small city in Pakistan known for its shrines. She owns a small house of two rooms and has been living in it with her family for the last fifteen years.

Razia is a seamstress, sewing clothes for her neighborhood clients and earning an income for her family. She sews with perfect measurements which is admired by her customers.

Razia started this business four years ago and, during these years of experience, she has never received any complaint from her customers about her sewing. She is good at her art and that’s the reason that she receives regular orders. She charges between 100 and 150 PKRs which doesn’t feel to her customers like a big amount to pay.

Razia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her sewing business. With the loan, she will buy another sewing machine and hire a worker who will assist her in her work. In this way she will be able to complete larger orders on time and be able to produce quality work.

Razia is hopeful that, by improving her business, she will be able to provide better living facilities for her family and secure a bright future for her children.
