Maqsood Bibi's Group's story

Maqsood Bibi is a 55-year-old woman. She is married and lives with her family, a husband and three children who are 22, 21, and 19 years old. Her elder son is an expert at making embroidered dresses while her younger son works for a private company. Her daughter is a nurse and works in a clinic. Maqsood and her husband are very hard-working by nature. They both work in order to help each other financially.

Maqsood owns and operates a sewing business from her home. She takes orders from her community clients and bases her fees on the work she is asked to do. Her clients are satisfied with her and don’t argue about her rates.

Her husband is a scrap dealer who sells scrap to factories and other scrap dealers at a profit. Maqsood is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband’s business. He intends to use the loan to purchase scrap in bulk, which he will sell in order to generate more revenue. Maqsood is hopeful that the loan investment will bring positive financial changes to his business and her family’s standard of living will be improved further.

Note: In the photo, the lady holding a book (called the Asasah Passbook) is Maqsood Bibi.
