A loan helped to increase her sewing business.


Perveen's story

Perveen is a 49-year-old woman; she lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her five children. Her husband has been working in a small factory for many years; he is responsible to fulfill the needs of family. Perveen is also providing sewing services and earning income to contribute with her husband to manage the household.

She is needs different kinds of goods, e.g needles, thread, pieces of clothes, machine oil, etc for her business purposes, but due to insufficient financial means, she is unable to purchase these accessories. Therefore she has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner, BRAC Pakistan. This loan will enable her to purchase the above accessories, and also will be helpful for her to increase monthly sales and profit by providing better sewing services.

Perveen is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.


This loan is special because:

It provides financial services in some of the poorest parts of Pakistan.
