A loan of $625 helped a member to buy a rickshaw for her husband.


Najma Liaqat Ali's Group's story

Najma is a resident of Borewala, a small city in Pakistan that is known for its shrines. She owns and operates an embroidery business from her home. She started making embroidered clothes for her neighbors three years ago and now she receives regular orders from them due to her good work. She is an expert in her art and knows different embroidery techniques, and this helps her to attract more customers. She does this work to supplement her family's income.

Her husband, L. A., is a driver by trade and drives a rickshaw that he rents. He provides transport facilities and charges according to the distance of the journey. At the end of the day, he has to pay half of his earnings to the rickshaw owner. For this reason he is unable to meet the financial expenses of his family. Therefore, Najma has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband. With the loan, her husband will buy a rickshaw. This will enable him to improve his earnings. By owning his own rickshaw, L. A. will be able to drive it for long hours without the tension of paying rental costs and having to return it at the end of the day.
