A loan helped to buy a new professional sewing machine along with an inventory of colorful thread, laces, buttons and artificial gems.


Farzana's story

Farzana is a 31-year-old woman. She lives with her children and spouse in Nankana Sahib. She wants to ensure a better future for her children and wants to educate them, but her husband's income is not enough to fulfill her dreams. Therefore, to help her family meet their living expenses, she has been stitching clothes for the last five years.

Her current sewing machine is outdated and requires replacing along with an inventory of colorful thread, laces, buttons and artificial gems. However, due to limited finances available, she has been unable to do so.

To meet this challenge, she has requested a loan so that she can buy a new professional sewing machine and some additional thread and cloth for her business.

Farzana is very grateful to Kiva and JWS Pakistan.
