Safiya's story

Safiya is a 46-year-old single independent woman with more than 15 years of experience in sewing and stitching. Working from home, she provides tailoring and repairing services for clothes and curtains.

Safiya is quite happy with her business and its support for her life. People in her village like her designing, patching and fine-finishing skills. She is confident of her products and trusts her continuity in this field.

Safiya is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua, to buy some tools and fabrics necessary for her business. As she generates more income, she wants to assist her sister in covering some of her living expenses.
