Rukhsana's Group's story

Rukhsana is the mother of five children. Her husband makes and sells lemon soda, a cold drink very popular among his customers. Her eldest son works with his father while all of her remaining children are enrolled in the local school and getting their education.

Rukhsana is a seamstress. To help support her family, she sews clothes for her customers in her community. She is very efficient in her work, and due to her good skills, she receives regular orders every month.

Rukhsana’s group has applied for a 95,000 PKR loan from KIVA’s partner Asasah. She will use her portion to help with her husband’s business. With the money he will buy a soda-making appliance that will allow him to offer better quality cold drinks to his customers and so increase his sales and profits.

Rukhsana is confident that with this loan her husband’s business will improve.
