Yasmeen's story

Yasmeen is a 42-year-old married woman. She is a mother of three daughters and two sons.

She has been making embroidery with her hands at home for many years to support her family. In fact, her husband remains sick most of the time and unable to do a job. To support her children, and to meet household expenses, she started making embroidery at home. A supplier comes to her home and provides all the raw materials she needs to make the embroidery; and she completes her tasks with her daughters using wooden frames.

Yasmeen wants to start buying her raw materials directly, and to sell her embroidered items herself in the market so she can make more profit. Therefore, Yasmeen has asked for a Kiva loan to buy raw materials and wooden frames, so she can make more embroidered dresses to sell, and make more income.

She hopes to get a boost in her earnings through her increased sales. She wants to use a portion of revenue to provide a quality education for her children.
