A loan helped to buy tailoring accessories for her sewing business to earn more income.

Nusrat's story

Nusrat is a 45-year-old woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her five children. Her husband has been running an electronics shop for many years. He is responsible to fulfill the needs of the family. Nusrat is also providing sewing services and earns income to contribute with her husband to manage the household.

She needs different kinds of tailoring accessories such as needles, lace, thread, pieces of cloth, buttons, machine oil, etc. for her business purpose, 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 these above accessories and also help her to increase her monthly sales and profit by providing better sewing services.

Nusrat 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.
