A loan of $825 helped a member to buy embroidery materials for her embroidery business.

Perveen's Group's story

Perveen is a widow and has three sons who live with her. After the death of her husband, she started an embroidery business. She is expert in hand embroidery and crafts beautiful designs on clothes and gives them a new look.

She couldn’t educate her eldest son but she taught him the art of stitching. He is now a tailor and operates his tailoring shop in the market and supports the family financially. Perveen’s younger children are enrolled in a school and getting their education.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the expansion of her embroidery business. With the loan, she will buy embroidery materials such as beads, colored thread and sketches in bulk to prepare beautiful embroidered dresses to sell to different cloth shops for larger profits. She hopes that an investment will increase the profit from her business.

She is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her 2nd loan application. In the previous loan year, she established a good credit record and never missed any meeting.

Perveen lives in a small city in Pakistan called Kot Radha Kishen in a 3-room brick house. This town is located in Punjab, Pakistan and is known for its agriculture industry.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Perveen.
