Asia's Group's story

Asia, 39, is married and spending her life with her four children and husband in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is taking a loan out for her husband, who owns an embroidery shop.

Her husband has been selling embroidery materials for many years. He sells sequins, pearls, thread, precious stones, silk, needles and wooden frames for embroidery. The embroidery material for bridal dresses is very expensive, but its turnover is very high.

Due to the high cost of materials, he is facing a shortage and is unable to purchase expensive raw materials to sell. Therefore, Asia has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan. With this loan, her husband can fill the shortage of embroidery materials. He will buy stocks of thread, fancy cloth, sequins, precious stones and pearls of various colours.

Asia is very thankful to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
