Maqsoodan's Group's story

Maqsoodan is a 43-year-old lady who supports her family with her sewing business. She operates her business from her home. Her earnings allow her to pay the education fees for her children so they can continue their education and improve their lives.

Maqsoodan has four children: three daughters and one son. Her eldest daughter has completed her education to 10th standard and now works as a nurse in order to financially contribute to the family. Her second daughter is in 10th standard, while her younger daughter is in 9th standard. Her son is not yet old enough to attend school.

Her husband is a driver. He drives a rickshaw and provides transportation to his passengers. He has been in this profession for the past ten years. Maqsoodan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. With the loan, he will repair his rickshaw because it is currently not operating properly and doesn’t allow him to drive on longer routes. With a fully-repaired rickshaw, her husband will be able to continue his business and provide his services to more passengers.
