Shamim's Group's story

Shamim is a talented lady who operates a sewing business to support her family financially. She is very skillful and receives a good number of orders every month. She is the mother of three sons. Her eldest son has a garment-selling business. The next one sells cosmetics while the youngest one has a clothes-selling business. They all work hard and contribute to their family financially from their earnings.

Shamim has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her sewing business. With the loan, she will buy a new sewing machine which will help her produce quality work and fulfill orders on time. She has been operating this business for many years. She has a lot of business contacts. She hopes that an investment will help her business to grow further.

She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan application with Asasah. She hopes that it will be a profitable experience for her.
