Amina, a 34-year-old hard-working woman, lives in Rawalpindi Pakistan with her husband, four sons, and two daughters. One son and both daughters are studying, and her husband is a cook. His income is insufficient to meet the family's needs, so Amina is trying to help him fulfill their needs by sewing clothes. She is a tailor, and she wants to generate more income by purchasing a new sewing machine. She will extend her business if she gets a good amount of profit in the future.

Amina requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a sewing machine to stitch more dresses and satisfy the needs of her clients more professionally. With the help of the loan she hopes to reach her desired net income and be able to save for her family's future. She dreams of giving her children a quality education.
