Hajra Muhammad Ahmad's Group's story

Hajra is married and the mother of seven children. She lives in Chichawatni, a small city of Punjab, Pakistan, that is known for its agriculture industry. For the past 20 years, Hajra has lived in the Al-Fateh neighborhood in a three-room brick house with her family. Hajra is a seamstress who sews clothes for neighborhood clients to share the financial burden with her husband. She is very experienced in her work and is able to make beautiful clothes that satisfy her clients. Hajra’s eldest son works at a grocery store for a low income while another son is a shoe-polisher. Her other children stay at home as Hajra is not financially able to provide for their education.

Hajra’s husband operates a clothes-selling business. He purchases clothing from Multan, which is famous for its clothes and embroidery industry, and sells his inventory to local clients and shopkeepers for a profit. Hajra is applying for her second loan from the Kiva partner Asasah so that her husband can expand his business. He will buy bulk clothing of different varieties to improve his inventory and reduce his travel costs.

Hajra is a responsible Asasah client who has repaid her previous loans efficiently. In this photo, Hajra is shown holding her Asasah Passbook.
