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

A loan helped to buy a new sewing machine, colorful threads, cloths, buttons, needles and to pay for her children's education.

Shahida Parveen's story

Shahida Parveen is 29-year-old married woman. She is the mother of four children and lives in the town of Sialkot, Pakistan. She is striving hard to support her children by providing food, education and healthcare. She is very familiar with stitching techniques and is famous for her designing as well. She learned these skills from a vocational training institute.

Currently, she is requesting a loan to buy a new stitching machine, along with some colorful thread, cloth, buttons and needles from JWS Pakistan. This would help her to meet the demands of her customers in an efficient manner. She hopes to grow her business and dreams of providing a better education for her children.

She is grateful to Kiva and JWS Pakistan.
