Safia's Group's story

Safia is requesting a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her sewing business. With the loan investment, she will buy a new sewing machine that will allow her to finish her orders on time and prepare better looking clothes for more profits. She is very skillful and is very creative minded. Her creativity helps her to make different designs of clothes for her clients. Her husband has a job and earns a low income, which is not enough for the whole family. That is why Safia started her business a few years ago. Now she has a good number of clients in her community who gives her regular orders every month. She is the mother of a son and a daughter. Her son studied until 8th and is now looking for a job while her daughter is only 9 months old. Safia is confident that a loan investment will help her earn more profits from her business and she will be able to save some profits for the future of her children. Note: In the photo, the lady holding a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Safia.
