A loan of $950 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine.


Shahla's Group's story

Shahla has applied for a loan for the second time from Kiva partner Asasah for her sewing business. She started this business 10 years ago because her husband’s income was not enough to fulfill the basic needs of the family. Now she is very much an expert in her work and receives a good number of orders every month from her neighboring clients.

She will use the loan money for purchasing a new sewing machine, which will help her complete orders on time and make more income.

She is 28 years old and a confident person who is very much hopeful that an investment will bring more profits to her and she will be able to enroll her second daughter, who is now 7, in school in the near future.

She is the mother of three daughters; her eldest daughter is enrolled in the local school and is getting her education. Her husband's name is A. A.; he works in a factory for a low income.

She belongs to Khanewal, which is a small city of Pakistan known for its agriculture industry. She owns a two-room brick house and lives in it with her family.

Note: In the photo, the lady with the book called the Asasah Passbook is Shahla.
