A loan helped to buy stock of cloth for sewing children's garments from home.


Razia's story

Razia is a 64-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She has been sewing children's garments for the past several years to support her family. She beautifully sews garments at home and then sells them in the local market. By this time, she has attained a regular list of customers and makes enough to contribute to the family income. Her husband also works in a factory but earns insufficient income to support his family alone.

Razia is the mother of seven children and is motivated to provide all facilities to her family. To cope with increasing demand, she has requested a loan to purchase stock of cloth for sewing into garments. She hopes to increase her earnings through her large sales. She is in her third loan cycle and has an excellent repayment record. She wishes to utilize a portion of her revenue to provide a quality education for her children.

Razia thanks Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.


This loan is special because:

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