A loan helped to purchase raw material items for her business including laces, buttons and thread.


Aafia Naseem's story

Aafia Naseem is a 28-year-old woman living with her family in the area of Gujranwala, Pakistan.

She runs a women's clothing tailoring business at her home. She has been working in this sphere of services since 2012. Her relatives helped her to initiate her business back then; since then, she worked very hard to make it grow and flourish as it does now.

Currently, she requires purchasing a few raw material items for her business, including laces, buttons, thread and artificial gems for her designing purposes, but she finds it difficult to buy these required items due to financial constraints.

Therefore, she has requested a loan from JWS Pakistan, a field partner of Kiva.

Aafia Naseem is very thankful to Kiva and JWS Pakistan.


This loan is special because:

It helps women entrepreneurs grow their small businesses.
