Safia's Group's story

Safia is a very active and nice lady. She takes care of her home by doing her household responsibilities. In addition, she works as a seamstress and embroidery expert. She is very skillful and receives regular orders every month. She started doing this work to support her husband financially. Now she has become renown among her community clients for her good skills and work. The income she earns helps to pay off the utilities and to manage the other household expenses.

Her husband is a driver by profession and provides transport services to his passengers. Safia is the mother of four sons and a daughter. Only her two younger children are able to attend school and get their education. Her eldest son has a construction supplies business, the second son is a laborer and the third one is a building contractor.

Safia has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the betterment of her embroidery business. With the loan, she will buy embroidery frames and embroidery materials such as beads, colored thread and sketches in bulk quantity to be able to make better quality embroidered clothes and increase her income. She has been operating her business for the past eight years and is very confident that the investment will be a profitable one for her business.
