Allah Rakhi's Group's story

Allah Rakhi, aged 40-years, is involved in a sewing business. Her work is home-based, which she does to support her family financially. She sews clothes for her neighbor-clients and charges PKRs 120 for a simple dress and PKRs 150 for a designer dress. The income she earns allows her to manage the financial expenses of her family. She is the mother of five children: four sons and one daughter. Her daughter is the youngest one among the brothers. Her eldest son works in a factory. Allah Rakhi’s husband is a rickshaw driver. He offers his driving services to the passengers by dropping them at their destinations. He has set the fare route wise which is very affordable for his passengers. Allah Rakhi has requested for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her own business. With the loan, she will buy unstitched clothes to sew so she can start selling the stitched clothes along with her sewing business. She is very much confident about the positive start up of her new activity with this loan investment.
