Robina's Group's story

Robina is the mother of a 2 year-old daughter. Her husband is a cobbler and makes shoes, while she supports him by sewing clothes for her neighboring clients. She loves doing sewing work and has learned this art from her mother. Due to the good quality of her work, she receives a good number of orders every month. She is very supportive in nature and has applied for a loan from KIVA partner, Asasah, for the further improvement of her husband’s shoe-making business because he has a large order to fulfill. With the loan investment, he will purchase shoe laces, leather and other raw materials in larger quantity. That will allow him to complete the larger orders on time and earn him more profits. He is very experienced and has been operating the business for the past many years. Robina is hopeful that an investment will be a productive one for him and will increase his profits. Robina is a new loan applicant and hopes that it will be a profitable experience for her.
