A loan of $300 helped to acquire raw materials such as needles, threads, buttons, and cloth.


Maryum's story

Maryum is a working woman. She is the mother of 4 children and lives with her family in Gujranwala, Pakistan.

She has been providing the service of cloth stitching in her locality for the last 3 years. She is quite popular for her skills in stitching. Her work brought the family out of a financial crisis that they were facing when she started working. Over the years, she has established a good clientele.

She now wants to acquire some raw materials such as needles, threads, buttons, and cloth, so that she will gain some additional revenue from her work. Unfortunately, she lacks financing to do so. Therefore, she has requested a loan from JWS Pakistan, field partner of Kiva.

Maryum and her family are very appreciative to Kiva and JWS Pakistan.
