A loan of $925 helped a member to open up an educational academy.


Sofia's Group's story

Sofia is a member of a three-person borrower group. Her husband is working as a carpenter in a factory. She has two kids, and due to his low monthly income she is having a very difficult time.

Sofia is a well educated woman. She wants to help her husband in generating income by opening an academy where she could teach students for a nominal fee. In this way she would also utilize her teaching skills, and secondly she would be able to increase the monthly income which could solve many of her problems.

From the Kiva loan she would buy some chairs, tables and some necessary furniture for the students. She is very thankful to Kiva lenders. In the picture, Sofia is raising her hand.

In this group: Sofia, Nusrat, Tasleem
