Khalida's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy raw materials including cloth, colorful thread, needles, buttons and lace.

Khalida's story

Khalida is a woman entrepreneur who is struggling to bring prosperity to her family along with her husband. She is 49 years old and lives in a small house with six family members. She is a skilled woman and has adopted cloth stitching as a source of livelihood. She has around five years of experience in cloth designing and stitching.

At the moment she is lacking finances to purchase raw material including cloth, colorful thread, needles, buttons and lace for cloth stitching. She therefore has requested a loan from JWS Pakistan, field partner of Kiva to finance raw material for her business.

She is hopeful that the loan will be productive for her business and family.

She is grateful to Kiva and JWS Pakistan for the kind help.
