Saeeda's Group's story

Saeeda resides in Multan, which is a big city in Pakistan known for its history and tombs. She lives there in a small housing colony, named Muhallah Rahimabad, with her family in a 2-room brick house. She moved here 8 years ago.

She belongs to a poor family. So, in order to financially assist her family, she makes embroidered clothes and also sells cloth. She buys clothes from the markets of Multan and sells them to her local area clients for good profit. Basically, she is a very creative lady and loves to craft beautiful embroidered dresses. She sells her embroidered dresses to different boutiques and people admire her talent and give her good orders.

Saeeda is also a very good wife and mother. She is married to F. who also has a business of embroidery. She is bringing up her 6 children with great care. Her elder son does his own business, while her remaining children are getting their education.

Saeeda has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah in order to improve her clothes selling business. She will utilize the loan to purchase clothes in bulk quantity that will help her offer more variety to her clients and make more sales. She is hopeful that, in this way, she will be able to make more money and provide better living facilities to her family.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Saeeda.
