Zari
Zari is 45 years old and a hardworking mother of three children. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan along with her husband and children. She is a very skilled woman and she is a real expert in stitching up dresses. She has been doing this tailoring work for 10 years. All the people in her area are well satisfied and happy with her work. Zari provides her services at a very reasonable amount; that's why her work is increasing day by day.
Zari has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. She 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 a new sewing machine. This would increase her net income and savings. She would spend the profit amount on the education of her children.
