A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine for a sewing business.


Kosar's Group's story

Kosar is a seamstress and sews clothes for her neighboring clients.

She lives with her brother and 4 children; 3 sons and a daughter. All of her children are enrolled in a local school and are getting their education except for her eldest son who works in a factory. Her brother also works in a factory.

Kosar has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her sewing business. With the loan, she will buy a new sewing machine because her current machine doesn’t produce quality work. The new machine will help her to finish the orders on time and increase her profits.

She is very confident that this investment will help her improve her income and enable her family to live a better financial life.
