Naseem's Group's story

Naseem is a very active lady. She supports her husband financially by preparing wooden stools. She started this business a few years ago. She is a very hard worker by nature. While working, she never thinks of day and night. Her work is very demanding in her area. Her husband is a mason by profession and constructs houses and buildings by contract. He is known as an expert in his work and offers quality services to his clients. Naseem is the mother of 2 sons. She has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her eldest son, who makes and sells shawls at different clothing shops in the market. He sells a variety of shawls, such as embroidered, simple and colorful shawls, to his customers. With the loan investment, he will buy colored thread, beads and laces in bulk quantities that will allow him to make better quality and a higher variety of shawls, selling them at higher profits. Naseem is confident that an investment will help her son make his business better. Note: “In the photo, the lady holding a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Naseem.”
