Shamim's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a sewing machine to continue her services from home instead of going to a stitching firm.

Shamim's story

Shamim, aged forty-six, is the mother of three daughters and a son. Nowadays she is working in a stitching firm and has been sewing caps for many years. Her firm is a bit far away from her residence, which is the reason she wants to provide seamstress services from home. She wants to buy a professional sewing machine but she does not have enough cash on hand to buy her own sewing machine.

Therefore, Shamim has requested a Kiva loan so she can buy a sewing machine and can provide seamstress services from home. In this way, she can easily sew caps from home and refrain from covering the long distance.

She is very thankful for this kindness from Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
