Bano's Group's story

Bano (pictured holding the Asasah Passbook) is a talented lady who operates an embroidery business at her home in order to financially support her family. She learned this art from her mother and is now earning money from her skill. She is also a caring homemaker who manages the household chores and takes care of the family. She has given birth to four children. Her elder son is involved in manufacturing glass items like tables, mirrors, and windows while her other children are enrolled in school and getting their education.

Her husband’s name is M. T. and he is a cobbler by profession. He makes shoes on orders received from different shoe factories and shoe shops. He has a shop in the market from which he offers his shoemaking services.

Bano has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to financially assist her husband in his shoemaking business. With the loan, he will buy leather, nails, and shoe polish in larger quantities in order to make shoes in bulk so that he can fulfill his orders on time and increase his income. He has been engaged in his business for past seven years and Bano is hopeful that her husband’s business will improve further after this loan investment.

She is a new loan applicant of Asasah and hopes that it will be a good experience for her.
