A loan of $1,075 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine for her brother-in-law's tailoring business.

Kosar's Group's story

K. is 35 years old and has six children. Her eldest son is a factory worker while the others are enrolled in school and getting an education. Her husband is a tailor by profession. He is an expert in his work and has a good number of customers in his area who give him regular orders. K.’s two brother-in-laws also live with her family. One of her brother-in-laws is also a tailor. The second is a daily wage laborer.

K. is very supportive – she knows that her husband alone is unable to meet the financial needs of the family. That’s why she operates a milk sales business. She keeps a buffalo at her home for this purpose. She milks it every day and sells the milk to her customers in her community for a profit. She also carries out her responsibilities as a housewife very well.

K. has applied for a loan from Kiva partner, Asasah, for the expansion of her brother-in-law’s tailoring business. With the loan, he will buy a new sewing machine, which will help him fulfill orders on time and increase his profits. She is expecting that after the loan investment, her brother-in-law’s business will be improved and her family’s income will be increased, which will help them achieve a better standard of living. K. is a regular loan user of Asasah and this is her second loan application. In her previous loan year, she established good credit behavior and never missed a meeting.
