A loan of $950 helped a member to buy clothes and embroidery material.


Zaib's Group's story

Zaib lives in Khanewal, which is a small city located in Punjab province of Pakistan known for its agriculture industry. She has been living in the area of Marzipura in a two-room brick house with her family for the past 15 years. She is married to M. N. who works for the Pakistan railway for a low income. To fulfill the basic needs of the family, and to financially assist her husband, Zaib does sewing and embroidery work for neighborhood clients. The money she earns helps pay the utility bills and cover other household expenses.

Zaib has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, to further improve her business. With this loan, she will purchase clothes and embroidery materials such as beads and colored thread to fulfill the orders of her customers on time and to increase her income. She has been in this business for the past five years and is very sure that an investment will definitely be helpful to her in improving her business.

Zaib is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her second loan application. She has built a good credit record in the previous loan year and never missed any meeting. In the photo, the lady with a book (an Asasah passbook) is Zaib.
