Shazia's Group's story

Shazia is a married woman whose husband works in a travel agency. He offers his customers services related to Hajj and Umra, which are Muslim religious festivals.

Shazia has a job as a teacher in a nearby school. She is very talented in her profession and puts all of her effort into transferring her knowledge to her students.

She also operates a business of selling clothes to make extra income. She sells clothes to her neighboring clients. Due to her good collection of clothes she receives a good number of orders every month.

She is the mother of five children, all of whom are getting their education by attending school nearby.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her clothes-selling business. With the loan, she will buy clothes in bulk, which will allow her to offer more variety to her customers and increase her profits.

She has been operating her business for many years and is confident that this investment will be a profitable one for her.
