Safia's story

Safia is a 48-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of four children. Her husband is a shoe maker and very expert in his profession. He has been manufacturing shoes for many years. He sews leather and rexine shoes through a machine, and after that attaches the soles through stitching with his hands. In this way he is getting income for his family. He has been making shoes at home, and now he wants to increase his business on a wider level. But he does not have the amount needed to buy initial raw materials for making shoes. Therefore, Safia has requested a loan for her husband so he can buy the necessary materials. This will help him to continue his business. Safia is so much thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
