A loan of $725 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine.


Najma's Group's story

Najma is married to M. S. and operates a sewing business to share the financial burden with her husband. She started this business three years ago because her husband was not able to meet the basic needs of the family alone. Her husband is a private entrepreneur who sells fruit from his four-wheeled cart, visiting different areas of the community. Najma helps him by arranging the fruit on his cart early in the morning. She has given birth to two daughters and a son. Her daughters are studying while her son is 10 years old and stays at home. Najma lives in a small residential area of Multan known as Kher abad. Multan is a big city in Pakistan known for its shrines and hot weather. She has lived there in a two-room brick house for the past 15 years. Najma has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to buy a new sewing machine which will help her finish orders on time and produce quality work. She is very hopeful that the investment will bring good results for her business and improve her profits. This is her first loan application to Asasah and she hopes it will result in a long-term relationship.
