Shabana's Group's story

Shabana lives in Lahore, which is the second largest city of Pakistan and famous for its history and culture. She lives there with her family in the area of Mughalpura in a 3-roomed house. A talented lady, Shabana operates an embroidery business at her home. She makes embroidered dresses for her neighboring clients and earns well after completing them. She is the mother of 2 sons and 3 daughters. All of them study, except the youngest one who is only 2 years old. Her husband’s name is M. and he is a painter by profession. He paints walls, doors and windows on contract and generates income for the family. Shabana has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her embroidery business. With the loan, she will purchase embroidery material such as beads, colored thread and clothes in bulk to offer more embroidered variety to her customers and to make more income. She has been operating this business for over 9 years and she is hopeful that an investment will bring more profits for her. She is a new loan applicant of Asasah.
