A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy a new sewing machine for a sewing business.


Safia's Group's story

Safia is very supportive in nature and sews clothes for her neighboring clients. She learned sewing skills before her marriage and now she is making full use of her skills to earn an income for her family.

Her husband works in the field and grows different seasonal crops.

Safia has given birth to two daughters. Both of them are also sewing experts. She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah to aid the further expansion of her sewing business. With the loan investment, she will buy a new sewing machine, which will allow her to complete client orders on time and increase her sales and income because her current sewing machine is not up to the task.

She is very confident that her business will grow further after the loan investment.
