A loan of $1,425 helped a member to buy scrap.

Farzana's Group's story

Farzana, 31 years old, was married at a young age and has 6 children. Her 2 elder children are getting their education while the others are not yet of school-going age. Since it is difficult to manage the household expenses from her husband's earnings, Farzana also works by sewing clothes for her neighboring clients. The income she earns helps to pay her children's school fees.

Farzana's husband is a scrap dealer who sells scrap to different factories and to other scrap dealers in the city. Farzana has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for the further improvement of her husband’s business. He will use the loan investment to buy scrap in bulk quantities that will allow him to fulfill his clients' orders on time and to increase his profits.
