A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy paper and glue for her envelope making and selling business.


Salma's Group's story

Salma is a very supportive lady who, along with her husband, makes and sells paper envelopes. Her husband collects the orders from different stationery shops and also delivers the envelopes to them on their requested date. She is 49 years old and doesn’t have any children. She has applied for a loan from the Kiva partner, Asasah, for her husband’s business, because her husband has a big order to fill. With the loan, he will buy paper and glue in bulk quantities that will allow him to complete the orders on time and increase his profits. Her husband has been operating the business for the past 10 years, and Salma is confident that an investment will be a productive one for him and will increase his profits. Note: “In the photo, the lady raising her hand is Salma”.
