Parveen's story

Parveen is a 41-year-old woman living with her family in the area of Gujranwala, Pakistan. She runs a women's clothing tailoring business from her home. She has been working in this sphere of service for the past year. Her relatives helped her to start her business, and since then she has worked very hard to make it grow and flourish as it does now.

Currently, Parveen requires purchasing more raw materials for her business including laces, buttons, threads and artificial gems for designing purpose, but she finds it difficult for her to buy these required items due to financial constraints. Therefore, she has requested for a loan from JWS Pakistan, a KIVA field partner.

Parveen is very thankful to Kiva and JWS Pakistan.


This loan is special because:

It helps women entrepreneurs grow their small businesses.
