Jamila's Group's story

Jamila has requested a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her sewing business.

She sews clothes for her community clients. She is very skillful and her clients like her work very much and give her regular orders every month. With the loan investment, she will buy a new sewing machine that will allow her to complete the orders on time and increase her income.

Her husband sells clothes and operates his business from a little shop in the market.

Jamila has given birth to two sons and two daughters. Her daughters remain at home and help Jamila in her household work, while both sons work as laborers.

She has been operating her business for many years and is confident that an investment will be helpful for her business.
