A loan helped to buy a new sewing machine and more sewing materials for her sewing services.

Saima Shaheen's story

Saima Shaheen is a 37-year-old married woman and a mother of four children.

She is a hardworking and independent mother who is helping her family by providing the services of tailoring at her home. She has been doing it for the past ten years. She knows very well the techniques of stitching. She sews garments for the nearest factories; her husband brings cloths from the factory. She earns enough to lead a decent life.

To help Saima Shaheen continue operation of her business, she requested a loan to buy a new sewing machine because her previous sewing machine has become out of order due to continuous work, and she wants to buy more sewing materials to run it more and earn more income. Moreover, she wants to purchase a new sewing machine and sewing materials that are useful for providing fast and more efficient stitching work.

In addition to repaying the loan, Saima Shaheen thanks Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan

This loan is special because:
