Bushra's Group's story

Bushra is a working lady who sews clothes for her neighboring clients. She is very skillful in her work and receives a good number of orders every month. Her skills enable her to earn a reasonable amount of income. Her husband is a scrap dealer. He supplies scrap to different factories and to other scrap dealers. Bushra has given birth to eight children. Her eldest daughter left her education after matriculation and started an embroidery business. Four of her children are enrolled in a school and getting their education. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s scrap business. With the loan, he will buy scrap like used papers, plastic bottles, and iron in bulk to be able to increase his sales and profits. Bushra hopes that through the loan investment her husband's business will be improved further.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Bushra.
