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

A loan helped to increase her tailoring business.

Rafia's story

Rafia is a 37-year-old woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her one child. Her husband is responsible to fulfill the needs of family. Rafia is also providing sewing services and earns income to contribute with her husband to manage the household.

She needs different kinds of goods, e.g., needles, threads, pieces of cloth, machine oil, etc., for her business purpose, but due to insufficient financial means, she is unable to purchase these accessories.

Therefore, she has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner BRAC Pakistan. This loan will enable her to purchase these above accessories and also will be helpful for her to increase monthly sales and profit by providing better sewing services.

Rafia is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
