She sews the bags along with her husband and daughter at home and the business is operated out of her home. She has 2 sewing machines for sewing handbags, which she operates with her daughter. Her husband deals with customers, taking orders from them and sewing the bags on order.
She wants to buy an additional sewing machine for sewing bags but does not have enough cash on hand. Therefore, Amtul Hafeez has requested a Kiva loan through field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that she can buy a new sewing machine and additional raw material, such as rexine, zipper, buckles, etc., for sewing bags. Her desire is to sell her bags directly on the market, so that she can get maximum reward for her efforts.
She thanks Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
