A loan of $925 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine for her business.

Halima's Group's story

Halima, a 41-year-old mother of two sons and two daughters, all of whom attend school, is married to a driver who provides transport services to his customers.

A seamstress by profession, Halima learned the art of sewing from her mother before marriage and now earns regular income from her five-year-old business through orders from her neighboring clients. A caring housewife and mother, Halima has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to buy a new sewing machine to replace her old one. The new machine will enable her to complete orders on time and increase her profits.

Known amongst her clients for the good quality of her work, Halima is confident that the loan will result in more profits and help her family to live better lives.
