A loan of $925 helped a member to buy cloth, thread, and materials to make bed sheets.


Safia's Group's story

Safia has three children, two of whom are studying and one who is too young to attend school. She is a seamstress who sews clothes for clients to financially support her husband. In this photo, Safia is holding a book called the Asasah passbook.

Safia is requesting a loan from the Kiva partner Asasah to use for her husband’s bed sheet business. Her husband will buy cloth, thread, and other raw materials to make a greater quantity of higher quality bed sheets to increase his sales and profits. Safia's husband has been operating his business for many years, and she has full confidence that his business will grow as a result of loan. She is hopeful that her husband's increased profit will allow her to send her youngest son to school next year.
