A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy leather, nails and glue for shoe manufacturing business.

Nazeeran's Group's story

Nazeeran belongs to Kasur, which is a small city of Pakistan known for its leather industry. She lives there in the area of Bhasarpura with her family in a three-room brick house. She is 49 years old and has seven children.

Her elder son has a shoe manufacturing business and all of his siblings help him in completing his orders to financially contribute to the family. They are all illiterate and couldn’t get an education due to financial constraints. As a result they couldn’t find jobs.

Her husband is involved in a paranda-making business (an ornament used to tie-back hair). It is in high demand in the local market and he earns a good income from his profession.

Nazeeran is also a very talented lady. She operates an embroidery business at her home. She offers her services to her community ladies for a reasonable amount and gets good orders from them every month.

She has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner, Asasah, for the improvement of her son’s shoe manufacturing business. He will utilize the loan for the purchasing of raw material, like leather, nails, glue, etc. to manufacture more shoes for selling. He has been operating this business since he was a teenager and has vast experience in this field. Nazeeran is hopeful that an investment will take her son’s business to a more profitable position and that he will be able to make more money by fulfilling orders on time. She is a new loan applicant of Asasah.
