Razia's Group's story

Razia is a very supportive lady. She is involved in an embroidery business. She does this work to support her family financially. She comes from a mid-sized city, Kasur, which is known in Pakistan for its leather industry. She owns a 2-room brick house in an area named Basti Shahdra and has been living in it with her family for over 20 years. She is married to G. N. who works in a factory for a meager income.

Razia has given birth to two daughters. Her elder daughter has completed her 10th class and now she helps Razia in completing her embroidery orders. Her younger daughter is 8 years of age and studies in a local school.

Razia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her embroidery business. With the loan, she will buy embroidery items such as clothes, beads, colored thread and sketches in bulk quantity to fill larger orders on time. This loan investment will help her in making more money and to improve the financial condition of her family.

She is a new loan applicant of Asasah and hopes it will have a positive impact on her business.

Note: In the photo, the lady who has holds a book (called Asasah Passbook) in her hands is Razia.
