Shazia Parveen's Group's story

Shazia Parveen is 26 years old, married and a mother of four children. Two of them are in school while the other two are too young to attend school. She is a very supportive lady by nature. She supports her husband in his shoe making business by making shoes. They work with each other so that her husband can finish the orders on time and be able to feed her family. Besides this, she completes her household responsibilities very efficiently. She provides comfort to her family by fulfilling their needs. She also gives time to her children so they never feel ignored. She is raising them with great care and discipline. She has requested a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further growth of her husband’s business. With the loan, he will buy leather, a shoe-polisher and nails in a larger quantity to be able to make more shoes so as to generate more revenue. He has almost fifteen years of experience in this work and Shazia is hopeful that the loan investment will bring better profits to his business. Note: “One of the members has an embroidery business. That’s why they are showing the embroidered dress”.
