A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy leather, shoe polish, laces and nails for making shoes.


Asia's Group's story

Asia is still very active at the age of 50 and performs her household duties very well. Her husband is a cobbler by profession and makes shoes on order. He has a good number of business contacts and he supplies shoes to different shoe-selling shops and factories. Asia has given birth to a son and a daughter. Her son left his education after 10th and started working with his father in his shoe-making business. Her daughter is an embroidery expert.

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 leather, shoe polish, laces and nails in a larger quantity that will allow him to fulfill the orders on time and earn more profits. He has been operating his business for the past 10 years and Asia is hopeful that an investment will help him expand his business.
