Shamim
Shamim is a 30-year-old hardworking mother of four children. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, along with her husband and children. She is a very skilled woman, and she is an expert in stitching up dresses. She has been doing this tailoring work for five years. All the people in her area are very well satisfied and happy with her work. She provides her services at a very reasonable amount. That's why her work is increasing day by day.

Shamim has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. Shamim wants to expand her business by purchasing one more sewing machine. She would be able to stitch dresses more appropriately and efficiently in less time with the new sewing machine. This would increase her net income and savings. She would spend the profit amount on the education of her children.
