Since 2006, Shakeela, by stitching clothes, has helped her husband to meet the household and children's education expenses. Now she is interested in continuing to grow her business by purchasing a new tailoring machine and tailoring materials like thread and clothing. For that reason, as a member of an eight-person lending group, she has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan.
With the profits, she wants to build a new room in her house. Her dream of life is to live happily with her family in their own house. She is very thankful to KIVA and BRAC and says that BRAC is working very well and the staff is very co-operative.
