but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase more sewing supplies for her sewing services.

Misbah's story

Misbah is a 46-year-old woman who lives with her six children in Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband is responsible for fulfilling the needs of their family. Misbah also provides sewing services to earn an income so that she can assist her husband with managing their household. She needs different types of supplies such as needles, thread, colorful laces, buttons, pieces of cloth, machine oil, and other items for her business. Due to insufficient financial resources, she is unable to purchase these supplies. For this reason, Misbah has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner, BRAC Pakistan. The loan will enable her to purchase these supplies so that she can increase her monthly sales and profits, as well as provide better sewing services. Misbah is very grateful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
