Fozia Parveen's Group's story

Fozia Parveen is a 33-year-old married woman. She has three children with her husband: two daughters and one son. All of her children are getting an education. She focuses on her children’s education so that they may have a bright future. Fozia is also an educated lady; she completed studies through the 10th standard, however she was not able to continue her studies due to the poor financial condition of her family.

She owns and operates a home-based embroidery business. She embroiders clothes by order and earns well after completing her orders on time. She is an expert in embroidery and crafts beautiful designs on clothes which help to attract more customers.

Her husband is a professional driver. He drives his own rickshaw and assists his passengers by dropping them off at their destinations.

Fozia has requested a loan from Asasah, a Kiva partner, for her embroidery business. She will use the loan to purchase clothes, beads and colored thread in a larger quantity so that she may acquire larger orders and increase her income.

She is hopeful that as a result of this loan and investment, she will bring positive financial changes to her business.
