Akbari's Group's story

Akbari is a very active lady who supports her family by sewing clothes for her neighboring clients. She is very good at her work and prepares beautiful looking clothes by using laces & ribbons. She earns good profits. Her husband is 45 years old and a janitor in the university.

Akbari has five children. Her youngest child is in fourth class. The other children left their education in their teen-age years and started work to contribute to the family financially. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her son who has a business making & selling snacks. He makes snacks using a snack-maker machine and sells to his local area clients. He generates income for the family. His clientele base is children and his snacks are very famous among them.

With the loan, he will buy required ingredients such as gram flour, cumin seeds and cooking oil in bulk quantity and repair the snack-maker to be able to make a larger number of snacks to sell and increase his profits.

Akbari hopes that an investment will be a profitable one for her son's business.
