Zaib's Group's story

Zaib lives in a three-room brick house in Farid town which is a small housing colony of the city of Gujranwala. She moved here 10 years ago with her family. She is 41 years old and married to M. A. who is an employee in a factory earning a low income. She is the mother of two sons and a daughter. Her elder son left his education after 10th class and started an embroidery business. He runs an embroidery shop in the market and makes good money from his work. Her other children are enrolled in a school and are getting their education. Zaib supports her family by doing sewing. She is very talented in her art and receives a good number of orders every month. Her income allows her to pay the education expenses of her children. She also trains girls in her area in sewing skills. She has been training girls for over 5 years.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her business. With the loan, she will buy another sewing machine that will help her train more girls and make more income. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In her previous loan year she proved herself a responsible client who always paid installments on time and never missed a single meeting. Note: In the photo, the lady holding a book (called Asasah Passbook) in her hands is Zaib.
