A loan of $1,275 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine for her sewing business.

Bushra's Group's story

Bushra has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her sewing business. She started her business a few years ago to financially support her husband who is a rickshaw driver, providing transport services to his passengers. With this loan, Bushra will buy a new sewing machine to replace her current machine that has become unreliable, making it difficult for her to meet order deadlines. By purchasing a new sewing machine, she will be able to finish orders on time and increase her profits.

Bushra is very efficient and is transferring her skills to her elder daughter by teaching her the art of sewing, enabling her to earn some income every month. Bushra’s other two daughters stay at home and help Bushra in her household tasks. Bushra’s eldest son is a painter and paints walls and buildings.
