Zaib.u.Nisa is a 34-year-old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of a child.

She has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan for her husband. Her husband is a tailor and an expert in his profession. He has been sewing clothes for many years. This is the reason he has a lot of experience about his profession. His sewing machine has become out of order and needs to be replaced with a new one, but he does not have sufficient cash in hand to buy a new sewing machine. Therefore, Zaib.u.Nisa has requested a loan for her husband so that he can buy a new professional sewing machine.

Her family has work hard to earn income for the huge family. Her husband also participates in earning monthly income. Zaib.u.Nisa is very thankful to Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
