In the Kathmandu Valley, clothing is made to order. Tailor stalls, where store owners sell material and work their sewing machines, line the streets. These skilled tailors make school uniforms for children, as well as the the traditional women's kurta surwal and men's daura surwal. With a Kiva loan, BPW borrowers are able to purchase additional cloth material or sewing machines that will increase production and profitability.
