Afshan's Group's story

Afshan is 31 years old. She is a married woman who lives with her family -- a husband and four children who are 12, 9, 8 and 6 years old.

Her husband is a factory worker on monthly wages. Besides her eldest son, the others are enrolled in a school and getting their education.

Afshan herself is very talented lady and operates an embroidery business at her home. She makes beautiful embroidered designs on clothes and earns income for the family. She not only manages her household expenses on time but also gives required time to her business. She has requested a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her embroidery business. With the loan, she will buy embroidery material such as beads, colored thread and sketches in larger quantities to enhance her business.

She is hopeful that her business will grow further and return her good profits after the loan investment.
