Nazia's Group's story

Nazia is a seamstress by trade. She sews clothes for her neighboring clients in order to share the financial burden with her husband. She is very skillful and receives regular orders from her neighborhood clients every month. She completes their orders on time and has a good reputation for her good work in the community. She is also a very good housewife and does her household duties, staying at home. She has given birth to a son and five daughters. She couldn’t enroll any of her children in school except her eldest daughter. Her husband operates a grocery store in the market. Through his store, he sells daily use items such as salt, sugar, cooking oil, spices etc. He is well known among his clients due to his good behavior and reasonable prices. Nazia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, her husband will buy groceries in bulk to put into his store to sell. This will allow him to offer more variety of products to his customers and earn better profits. Nazia is hopeful that an investment will make her husband’s business more profitable and will also expand his business. Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Nazia.
