A loan of $900 helped a member to buy a sewing machine.

Shameem's Group's story

Shameem is 48 years old, married and a mother of a 26-year-old son. He is a truck driver and delivers goods from one place to another. Her husband has also been involved in the transportation business for many years.

Shameem is a seamstress who sews clothes for her neighboring clients. She is very skillful in her work and receives regular orders every month. She has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her sewing business. With the loan investment, she will buy a new sewing machine because with her current machine she is unable to finish the orders on time.

She has been operating her business for the past many years and is confident that a new sewing machine will help her do her business better.
