A loan of $725 helped a member to buy embroidery material for embroidery business.

Bushra's Group's story

Bushra lives in Riawind, which is a small city located in Pakistan and famous for its dairy industry. She lives there with her family in an area called Jalalpura, in a 2 room brick house. She moved there after her marriage 17 years ago.

She is a working lady, who does embroidery works to bear the financial burden with her husband. Her husband is a rickshaw driver. He provides transportation services to his passengers and earns income for the family. Bushra is the mother of 5 children. All of them are illiterate as Bushra couldn’t provide them with education due to poor financial conditions.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the growth of her embroidery business. With the loan, she will buy embroidery material such as beads, colored thread, and clothes in bulk that will allow her to fulfill larger orders for her customers on time and to increase her household income as well.

She has more than 15 years of experience in her business and is hopeful that an investment will bring a lot of positive changes in her business.

This is a group loan. While each member of the group receives an individual loan, they are all collectively responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members if someone is delinquent or defaults.
