A loan of $2,300 helped a member to buy embroidery materials for her embriodery business.


Hamida's Group's story

Hamida is married with four children: 2 sons and 2 daughters. Her elder son works, while younger one is studying. Her daughters remain at home and support Hamida in her daily household tasks.

Hamida's husband is a day laborer, while she does embroidery to support her family financially.

She has applied for a loan from Asasah, a Kiva field partner, for the further expansion of her embroidery business. With the loan investment, she will buy beads, colored thread, and embroidery frames to improve her services. This will help her get more orders and increase her profits.

She has been operating her business for many years and she is confident about her business success after the loan investment.
