A loan of $1,325 helped a member to buy bamboo sticks to make strainers and trays to sell.

Maqboolan's Group's story

Maqboolan is married and a mother to three sons and a daughter. Her eldest son sells quilts while her daughter supports her in managing the household.
Maqboolan is a very talented lady, operating a business making strainers. She makes very traditional strainers from bamboo (an item used to filter out the dust of wheat, rice, lentils, etc.). This is her family's business. She operates it with her husband.
Her husband purchases bamboo sticks. They both make different designs of strainers and also trays (to serve food) to sell to different markets and shops.
Maqboolan has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for the further expansion of her family business. With the loan, her husband will buy bamboo sticks in larger quantities that will help in fulfilling orders on time.
Maqboolan and her husband are very experienced in this business and confident about their success as a result of the loan investment.

Note: One of the members has a sewing business--that's why she is showing it in the picture.
