Sughran's Group's story

Sughran is a caring lady who operates a sewing business at her home to supplement the income of her family. She sews clothes for neighboring customers and earns income. She is an expert in her work and can sew designer and non-designer dresses easily. Her quality work helps her to attract many customers, and she receives regular orders every month.

She lives in Pakpattan, which is a small city located in Punjab, Pakistan, and known for its agriculture industry. She owns a two-room brick house, where she has been living with her family for the past 15 years.

She is married to M. A., who is a painter by profession and paints houses and buildings on contract.

Sughran has two sons and two daughters. Her eldest son is a welder, while the others stay at home and don’t do anything.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy paint boxes of different shades, along with paintbrushes, which will help him to produce quality work and to maximize his profits.

Sughran is hopeful that an investment will be a good step towards the positive growth of her husband’s business. She is a regular loan user of Asasah, and this is her fourth loan application. In previous loan years, she has proven herself a responsible client who always paid her installments on time and never missed a single meeting.
