Asma's Group's story

Asma is a talented lady who does embroidery work to support her family financially. Her quality art brings in good income and she fulfills regular orders from her clients every month. She resides with her family in the area named Raja jang, which is a small area in the city of Riwind, located in Punjab province of Pakistan. Asma is 30 years of age, married to S. H., who has a business of making shoes. He has a small shop in the market where he receives orders from different factories and shoe shops to provide finished product to earn an income for his family. Asma has 2 sons and 2 daughters. Her oldest son is in kindergarten, while the others are too young to attend school yet. Asma wants to provide quality education to her children. That’s why she works very hard. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to help her husband in his shoe making business. With the loan he will buy leather, nails and shoe polish in larger quantities. That will enable him to make shoes in bulk quantity to fulfill the orders of his customers and increase his income. He has been in this business for over 10 years. Asma is hopeful that, through an investment, her husband will improve his business further and increase his monthly income. She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her second loan application. In her previous loan year, she built good credit behavior and attended every meeting.
