A loan of $850 helped a member to buy leather, thread, and wool for glove making business.


Razia's Group's story

Razia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her glove making business. She makes variety of gloves out of wool and leather to sell to her customers. She will utilize the loan money to buy raw materials like leather, thread, and wool in bulk to make larger quantity of gloves. This will help her fulfill larger orders and make more income.

Razia lives in Faisalabad, Pakistan, a city famous for its textile industry. She lives there in a 2-room brick house in the area of Ghulamabad. She moved here after her marriage 20 years ago to A. B..

Her husband works for a private company for a very small income. For that reason, Razia started her business to help share the financial burden with him. They have 7 children, but due to financial reasons only 3 of them are able to get an education.

Razia has been operating her business for the past 4 years and is very confident that she will be able to improve the living standards for her family by expanding her business. She is a new loan user of Asasah and this is her first loan application.
