Sidra is a 25 year old housewife. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan along her husband and two children. Both of her children are studying in school. Her husband has been successfully operating a tailoring business for three years.

Sidra has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. The main purpose of the loan is so that her husband can expand his business. There are currently two workers in her husband’s tailoring business. He wants to hire two more workers so that his production capacity will increase. For that purpose he requires two more new sewing machines and this loan would be used to purchase those new sewing machines.

Sidra is very hopeful that after getting this loan, her husband’s business would flourish. She is currently living in a rented house and desires to have her own house. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
