Naseem's Group's story

A caring & supportive lady, Naseem supports her family financially with her clothes-making business. She does this work for her neighboring clients. She is very skillful and receives a good number of orders every month. The earnings she makes help pay the utility bills. She has five children, all of whom are enrolled in a local school. Her husband is a plumber and provides sanitation repair services to his customers. Naseem has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband, who will use it to buy tools. This will allow him to provide better quality service to his clients and earn more profit. He has been operating this business for the past five years and has a good name in his region for the quality of his services. Naseem hopes that after the loan investment, he will be able to expand his business further. This is her first loan application to Asasah. She hopes that it will be a profitable experience for her family. Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Naseem.
