Nasreen is a 38-year-old woman living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her five daughters and two sons. She is a very hard-working tailor who wants to expand her business. Nasreen and her husband's biggest goal in life is to give higher education to all of their children and for each of them to be an independent human being in the future. But, because of financial constraints, it seems difficult for them to turn their dream into a reality. Nasreen has applied for a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a new sewing machine so she can stitch up more dresses and satisfy the needs of her clients more professionally.
She hopes, with the help of this loan, that she will be able to expand her business and reach her desired net income. That would enable her to provide quality education to her children and fulfill all of their basic needs in the future.
