Bilqees' Group's story

Bilqees is very supportive, sewing clothes to assist her husband financially. She is very fond of sewing, and she can make different styles of clothes for very reasonable prices. Bilqees is the mother of a son and a daughter. Her son sells clothes while her daughter is studying in the ninth grade. Her husband operates a grocery store in the market where he sells everyday items such as salt, sugar, and spices. Bilqees has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to improve her husband’s grocery business. With the loan, he will buy spices, sugar, cooking oil, snacks, and other items to fulfill the needs of his customers and increase his profits. He is very experienced in his business, and Bilqees is confident that the investment will increase his productivity, sales, and profits.
