A loan of $1,150 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine for a tailoring business.


Nargis' Group's story

Nargis is a widow. Her husband died a few years ago. She has given birth to six children. Her eldest son works in a vegetable market and the next two are tailors by profession. Her remaining children stay at home. Nargis couldn't educate them due to limited financial resources. Nargis has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, to financially assist her second son. He is 24 years old and an expert in men’s clothes sewing. He has good business sense and behaves very professionally with his customers. With the loan, he will buy a new sewing machine which will help him produce quality work in a short period of time. He started this business five years ago and Nargis is confident that an investment will help him improve his business further.
