A loan of $650 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine for her sewing business.


Abida's Group's story

Abida has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further improvement of her clothes sewing business. With the loan, she will purchase a new sewing machine that will allow her to complete the orders on time and increase her profits. She is 30 years old and she started this business to financially support her husband who has a construction supplies business. He makes contracts with different construction companies and fulfills their orders to earn an income. Abida is the mother of four children. She couldn’t educate them due to financial constraints. Along with her business, she performs her daily routine tasks very well.

She is very hopeful that her business will improve a lot after investing the loan into it. She has been doing her business for many years.
