Seema's Group's story

Seema G. M. is divorced and has two sons. They live in a small city called Kot Radha Kishan in Pakistan. Due to poor financial conditions, Seema was unable to educate her children, but she taught them the art of making curtains (used to hang on doors and windows to keep the sunshine out). This has become their family business and they have been able to improve their financial position through this business. They make curtains to supply to different shops in the market and earn a good profit. The specialty of their curtains is that they use different embroidery designs to attract more clients. Seema has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to grow their curtains business. With the loan, they will buy cloth, beads and colored thread in bulk quantity to make curtains in larger quantity to fulfill the orders of their customers. Seema is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her third loan application. In previous loan years, she has maintained a good credit behavior and never missed any meeting. Note: In the photo, the lady who holds a book (called the Asasah Passbook) is Seema.
