A loan of $750 helped a member to buy scrap in bulk.


Bushra's Group's story

Bushra is married and her husband deals in scrap. He provides scrap to other scrap dealers and to different factories. His business is doing well and he needs continuous investment to fulfill the orders on time. Bushra is a seamstress who sews clothes for her neighborhood clients for a profit. She learned this art from her mother and now she earns a reasonable income every month. This income helps her pay the utility bills.

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 scrap in bulk to be able to fulfill the client orders on time and earn more profits. He has good experience in his business and has been operating it for the past 13 years. Bushra is confident about the positive growth of her husband’s business after the loan investment. She is a new loan applicant and this is her first loan from Asasah.
