A loan of $750 helped a member to buy embroidery supplies for her husband's business.

Tahira's Group's story

Tahira has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner, Asasah, for the improvement of her husband’s embroidery business. With the loan he will buy embroidery supplies such as fabrics, colored thread and beads in bulk to offer better quality services to his clients by preparing different varieties of embroidered clothing. He operates his shop in the market and is well known among his clients for his good quality work. Tahira is hopeful that her husband’s business will improve after the loan investment which will result in making her family’s life better.

Tahira was married eight years ago and has four children. Two of them are studying and the others stay at home. She wants to enroll her remaining children in school, for which her husband needs to improve his business income because he is the only breadwinner in the family.

Tahira lives with her family in Mian channu, which is a small city located in the Punjab province in Pakistan, known for its agriculture industry. She lives there in a two-room brick house where she moved seven years ago.

She is a new loan user, and this is the first time she has applied for a loan from Asasah. She is hopeful that it will be a good decision for her family's future.
