Yasmeen's Group's story

Yasmeen is a housewife and working woman who also takes care of her household responsibilities. She operates a sewing business from her home and makes beautiful-looking dresses for her clients. She is married and has seven children. Her husband is daily wage laborer and works very hard to put three meals on the table for his family. Due to financial constraints, Yasmeen is able to provide education to only one of her daughters. Two of her other children work while the rest stay at home. She has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her sewing business. She will use this loan to buy a sewing machine so that she can finish orders on time and increase her profits. She has been operating her business for many years and is confident that by buying a new sewing machine, she will be able to earn more profits.
