Shamim's story

Shamim is 32-year-old working woman, lives with her husband and three children in the area of Multan, Pakistan, One child is going to school and getting primary education, while the other two children are toddlers.

She is a tailor and earns a decent income. With the kids growing up and going to school, the expenses are also increasing. Her husband is a mason, but his income is not much. Shamim opened her own business ten years back. Learning the technique of sewing at an early age, she decided to buy a sewing machine and raw materials such as needles, machine oil, threads etc for her work, but lacks sufficient funds.

Therefore Shamim has applied for a loan of PKR 25,000 from KIVA’s partner BRAC Pakistan. With the help of this loan, she will buy sewing machines and raw materials to expand her business. This is her 1st loan with BRAC Pakistan.

Shamim is thankful to KIVA, lenders and BRAC Pakistan.
