Azra's Group's story

Azra is 42, married and her husband has a business of making and selling shoes. He makes a variety of shoes and is very good with his customers in his dealings and makes good sales every month.

Azra is a seamstress who sews clothes for her neighboring clients and is very skillful in her work.

She is the mother of two sons and three daughters. Three of them are studying while her eldest son left his education after fifth standard and started a furniture polishing business.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her husband’s shoemaking business. With the loan, he will buy shoemaking material like leather, nails and shoe polisher in bulk that will allow him to make more shoes and sell them for a higher price.

Azra is very confident that her husband’s business will be improved further after the loan investment.
