A loan of $1,075 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine and embroidery materials.


Yasmeen's Group's story

Yasmeen has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her sewing and embroidery business. With the loan investment, she will buy a sewing machine and larger quantities of some embroidery materials such as beads and thread. This will allow her to improve her business conditions and increase her sales and profits.

Sewing and embroidery is a very common profession among ladies and there is a lot of competition. Yasmeen has been operating her business for many years, and she is confident about her success as a result of loan investment.

Her husband is an electrician by profession while her eldest son has a business selling medicine.

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