A loan of $1,275 helped a member to buy thread and tools for carpet weaving.


Bashiraan's Group's story

Bashiraan is 52 years old, married and has two sons. Her husband has a carpet weaving business. He is very skillful and weaves beautifully-designed carpets, which sell for a very good price. Bashiraan couldn’t educate her sons due to financial constraints. They are involved with their father in his business of weaving and selling carpets. Bashiraan has a clothes-selling business. She purchases them from a wholesale market and sells to her local area clients at a profit. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy thread and tools, which will enable him to weave better quality carpets and earn extra income. He is very experienced in his business and has been operating it for past 10 years. Bashiraan hopes that an investment will help him improve his business and income.
