A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy raw materials for a shoe-making business.


Tahira's Group's story

Tahira is 42 years old and married with two children. Both of them are enrolled in a local school and getting their education. Her husband is a cobbler by profession and involved in making shoes. He makes contracts with different shoe-selling companies and provides the finished goods to them on order. Tahira herself is a very caring lady. She manages her household activities by staying at home. Tahira has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business. With this loan, he will buy raw materials such as leather, shoe laces, nails and glue for making shoes in larger quantity and fulfilling his orders. He has been operating this business for the past six years, and Tahira is hopeful that an investment will be productive for his business and earn him better profits. Tahira is a new loan user of Asasah and this is her first loan application. She is confident about her family’s better financial future. In the photo, the lady with a book (an Asasah passbook) is Tahira.
