Zarina's Group's story

Zarina is a 47-year old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of six children.

She has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan for her husband. He is a shoe maker and very expert in his profession. He has been sewing shoes for many years. This is the reason he has a lot of experience about his profession. He sews shoes made of leather and rexene through sewing machine, after that attached its sole through stitching by his hands.

In this way he is generating income for his family. But his current income is insufficient. He has been making shoes at home, now he set up a shop to turn his business to a higher level so he can generate additional income. But he does not have cash in hand to buy initial raw material for making shoes.

Therefore, Zarina has requested a loan for her husband so he can buy sewing machine and initial raw material such as rexene, leather, thread, nails and rubber sole for making shoes.
She thanks Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan for this honorable support.
