A loan helped to buy more attractive cloth from the market at low prices to sew garments to sell at higher prices in her community.


Perveen's story

Perveen is a 38-year-old married woman living in the area of Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She is the mother of three children; her husband is a welder and provides welding services in his community. Perveen owns a small business of selling ladies' ready-made garments at home. She purchases cloth from the market at low prices, sews it, and sells the garments at a higher price in her community. The ladies of town like her garment selection a lot. The demand for clothes has increased because the wedding season is going on and people are demanding attractively designed clothes. Her husband can't afford to pay all the expenses of the household from his earnings; therefore, she contributes her earnings to help her husband manage the household expenses.

Perveen has requested a loan so that she can buy a larger variety of cloth to fulfill the demand. Perveen hopes for a bright future for her children, and her dream is to provide her children with a better education. She is very thankful to Kiva and to its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
