Lubna's Group's story

Lubna is a resident of Samanabad, which is a small housing colony located in Faisalabad. Faisalabad is Pakistan’s third largest city and well known for its textile industry. She has lived there in a 2-room brick house with her family for the past 15 years. She is the mother of 2 sons and 2 daughters. Unfortunately, none of them was able to get an education due to financial constraints.

A talented lady, Lubna owns & operates a sewing business at her home to supplement the income of her family. She learned this art from her mother before her marriage and is now taking good advantage of it. She sews clothes for her neighborhood clients and earns income after completing orders on time. Her clients prefer getting service from her, due to her good quality work and reasonable charges.

Lubna has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for her sewing business. With the loan, she will buy a new sewing machine because her current machine is old and doesn’t produce quality work. She has good expectations that she will be able to expand her sewing business because she will be able to finish the orders in a shorter time. That will allow her to take more orders every month.
She is a new loan user of Asasah and is confident that it will bring positive changes to her business.
