Razia Begum's Group's story

Razia begum is the wife of S. D. and belongs to the small city of Kasur in Pakistan. Kasur city is famous for its tannery industry. She owns a two-room house there and lives in it with her family.

She and her husband are involved in a clothing business. Her husband goes to Lahore and Faisalabad for purchasing clothes. Razia sells clothes to her community people and S. operates a clothing shop in the market. They are well known for their business. They get good orders from their customers and earn well by fulfilling them. They keep themselves up to date about the latest trends in fashion and easily understand the customers' demands. Their earnings help them to manage their finances smoothly.

Besides the clothing business, Razia also manages her household work efficiently.

She has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner, Asasah, for her family business. With the loan, her husband will buy clothes of different varieties in bulk quantities. The bulk purchasing will decrease the traveling costs and increase their business sales. They are hopeful that their business will be improved further after making this investment.
