Shumaila's Group's story

Shumaila is the mother of three sons and a daughter. Her eldest son left his education after the fifth and started a welding business while her remaining children are continuing their education. Her husband is an ice cream seller. He prepares great tasting ice cream, which his customers like very much. Shumaila is very supportive and operates a decorative embroidery business from her home. She has great artistic skills and makes beautiful looking embroidered clothes for her clients. She has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for further improvement of her business. With the loan investment, she will buy beads, embroidery thread, frames etc in larger quantity and of a different variety that will allow her to attract more clients by producing better quality embroidered clothes and increase her profits.
