A loan of $600 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine for sewing business.

Siddiqan's Group's story

Siddiqan is very supportive in nature. She sews clothes for her neighboring clients to earn an income for the family. She is very skillful and receives a good number of orders every month.

Her husband is a daily wage labor, and his income is not enough to meet the household expenses. That’s why Siddiqan operates her business to help support the family financially.

She is the mother of 7 children. Her eldest son is an auto mechanic while the others are enrolled in school and getting their education.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her clothes-sewing business. With the loan, she will buy a new sewing machine that will allow her to finish the orders on time and earn more income.

She is very confident that she will be able to put her business in a profitable position after the loan investment.
