Ailas' Group's story

Meet Ailas (woman with book in photo). She is one of this group's members. Alias is married and the mother of four children: three daughters and a son. Her oldest daughter is 22 years old. The next to her is age 19. Her younger daughter is in 6th grade and 13 years old. Her son finished his studies until 8th grade and started a mobile phone repairing business. He runs a shop in the market where he can repair any kind of mobile phone.

Ailas is a talented lady. She owns and operates a sewing clothes business at her home. She receives orders from neighbors. She also offers customers a variety of ready-made clothes that she sells at reasonable prices.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah. With the loan, Ailas will buy clothes and a sewing machine to expand her business. She is hopeful that with a new sewing machine and cloth she will double her income.
