Fehmida's Group's story

Fehmida lives in the second largest city of Pakistan called Lahore. It is an historic city and known for its culture and food. She lives in the area named Yadgar with her family in a 2 room brick house. She moved here after her marriage many years ago.

She is a seamstress and sews clothes for her clients who live in nearby areas. She also operates a clothes sales business. She purchases clothes from Lahore’s wholesale markets named “Ichra and Shahalmi” and sells them to her local area clients. Because both of her businesses are related to clothing, that is why this business combination is working well for her.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her clothes sales business. With the loan, she will buy clothes of different variety in bulk quantity for sale. The bulk purchasing will help her to cut her cost of purchasing and to improve her sales. She is hopeful that by utilizing a loan in her business she will be able to get the desired results.
