Her 2 younger sons are studying while her daughter stays at home. She is illiterate and didn’t get an education. She also spends her time managing the household chores. Sakina has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the improvement of her embroidery business. With the loan she will buy an embroidery machine which will help her finish her work in less time and make more money.
