A loan of $1,075 helped a member to buy wool in larger quantities for her wool-selling business.


Farzana's Group's story

Farzana is married and is 53 years of age. She sells wool in order to afford the living expenses of her family. Wool is used in making sweaters and other winter clothes. She has given birth to 2 sons. Both of them work and contribute to the family financially.

Farzana has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her wool-selling business. With the loan investment, she will buy wool in bulk quantities, which will allow her to sell in larger quantities and increase her sales and profits.

The winter season is here, and the demand for wool is high. Farzana is hopeful that by investing the loan she will be able to increase her income.

Note: In the photo, the lady holding a book (called the Asasah Passbook) is Farzana.
