Seema's Group's story

Seema has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her embroidery business. With the loan, she will buy embroidery items such as cloth, beads, colored thread and sketches in bulk quantity to fill larger orders on time. She is a very talented lady, involved in her embroidery business for over 15 years. She mainly gets orders from her neighborhood clients. By the grace of God, in these years she has successfully maintained her reputation among her customers through her quality work and fulfilling her commitments.

She is married to A. A. who is a daily wage labor. She has a daughter and a son. Both are illiterate and do different work. Her daughter does embroidery and her son has a business of leather selling. She lives with her family in Kasur which is a mid-sized city of Pakistan and known for its leather industry. She owns a two-room brick house where she has been living for over 20 years.

She is hopeful that she will be able to make more income after this loan investment which will result in making her family’s lifestyle better. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 3rd loan application. In previous loan years, she has proved a responsible client who has paid her installments on time and attended every meeting.
