A loan of $350 helped to buy raw materials like leather petals, wax, threads and protective gloves for making footballs.


Yasmeen's story

Yasmeen lives in the remote area of Sheikhupura City, Pakistan with her eight family members. She stitches and sells handmade footballs to earn her livelihood. Currently, due to a lack of money, she is unable to purchase the required raw materials like leather petals, wax, threads and protective gloves.

She therefore has applied for a loan from Kiva’s field partner JWS Pakistan. She hopes that the loan amount will be useful for her business.

She is so much happy and thankful to Kiva lenders.


This loan is special because:

It helps women entrepreneurs grow their small businesses.
