Fahima's story

Fahima is a 63-year-old married Iraqi woman and the mother of two. Forty-four years ago, she bought an old machine and started her sewing business to assist her husband in providing their family's income. She gained an excellent reputation in the neighborhood after she mastered this skill, thanks to the quality of her work and affordable prices. This is her third loan from Izdiharona. When Fahima heard about Kiva, she was very interested to share her story. Fahima is requesting this loan to buy an air conditioner, an overlock sewing machine and fabric to increase her production. She is aiming to grow her business and increase her profits so that she may continue assisting her husband with providing the family income.
