A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine for her husband's tailoring business.


Rehana's Group's story

Rehana has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah in order to improve her husband’s tailoring business. With the loan, he will buy a new sewing machine to improve his business. He will also hire a worker who will assist him in his work.

He is a very talented person and receives a good number of orders every month due to his good quality work. He can sew shalwar kameez (traditional garments of South and Central Asia), pants, and shirts of different styles, and charges very reasonable rates for his services.

Rehana is also a seamstress and sews clothes for her neighboring female clients. She started this business to support her husband financially.

She is the mother of four children, all of whom stay at home and don’t do anything.

She is very hopeful that after investing the loan, her husband will be able to gain larger profits and she will be able to send her younger children to school for education.
