A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy leather and laces for her shoe making and selling business.


Sakina's Group's story

Sakina is 56 years old. She is still very active and operates a shoe-making business. Her husband collects orders from the market, and both Sakina and her husband fulfill those orders by making shoes. The quality of their shoes is very good, which helps them get a good number of orders every month. Sakina has seven sons, but she couldn’t provide them education due to financial constraints. She has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah because she has a large order to fulfill. With the loan investment she will buy leathers and shoe laces in larger quantity and of better quality, which will help her completing the orders on time. She has been operating this business with her husband for many years and is confident about her family's business success after receiving the loan.
