Sughran's Group's story

Sughran A. K. is a member of a poor family living in Kasur, which is a mid-sized city famous for its sweetmeat in Pakistan. She lives in Rukan Pura, which is a small housing colony in Kasur, where she has a small house consisting of two rooms. Sughran is a very talented woman. She owns and operates an embroidery business in her home to supplement the income of her family. She mainly receives order from her neighboring clients and completes the dresses on time. Her husband, A. K., has a business of selling bedsheets. He buys the bedsheets from the city multan and sells them at the local markets of Kasur for a good profit. Sughran has two sons. Her elder son is involved in an embroidery business and her younger son is in school.

Sughran has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her son’s embroidery business. With the loan, her son will buy an embroidery machine, which will help him to complete larger orders on time and to work more efficiently. Sughran is very confident about the growth of her son’s business after this loan investment. She is a regular loan user of Asasah; this is her third loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained good credit and never missed any meetings.
