Irshad's Group's story

Irshad is married to S. A. and lives in a small city in Punjab, called Kasur, which is famous for its leather industry in Pakistan. She owns a small house of two rooms in the area named Laari-ada and lives in it with her family.

Irshad is a very talented lady. She owns & operates a decorative embroidery business at her home. Her clientele base are her neighbors and she receives regular orders from them to earn good profit on her business. She is very good at her art and knows different embroidery techniques, which makes her unique among other business women in the community. She crafts beautiful embroidery designs on clothes to attract more customers towards her work.
Her husband is involved in a bread-making & selling business. He owns a tandoor (a kind of oven made with mud and wood-burning fire) in the community. He sells his bread in 5 PKRs which has become a standard amount in every city. He has been serving the people of his community for the past 6 years. He supplies breads to different restaurants as well and earns a good profit.

Sakina has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s bread-making & selling business. With the loan amount, her husband will buy flour and wood in bulk quantities, which will enable him to make more bread and to increase the sales as well.
