Azra's Group's story

Azra lives in Kasur, which is a mid-sized city known for its leather industry in Pakistan. She is divorced and lives with her brother. Her brother is a painter by trade and paints doors and windows for his clients. He does this work for daily wages.

Azra spends her time by operating a clothes-selling business. She buys clothes from Multan, a city that is famous for its variety of clothes, and sells them in the local market in her community. She deals with a good number of clients and receives regular orders. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah. With the loan, she will buy clothes of different varieties in bulk quantity, which will cut her cost of traveling in addition to adding more variety to her stock to attract more customers. She is hopeful that this investment will be profitable for her business and provides her a regular income in the future. She is a new loan user of Asasah and this is her first loan application.
