Rafia's Group's story

Rafia is a 31-year-old, married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of five children.

Rafia has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan for her husband. He is a cobbler and is very expert in his profession. He has been manufacturing shoes for many years. This is the reason he has a lot experience about his profession. He sews leather and Rexine shoes through a machine, and after that, he attaches its sole through stitching by his hands. In this way, he is getting income for his family.

He wants to increase his production on daily basis but does not have enough cash in hand to buy raw material. Therefore, Rafia has requested a loan for her husband so he can buy raw materials such as leather, Rexine, glue, etc., for making shoes.

Rafia thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
