A loan helped to pay for a new sewing machine for her tailoring shop.

Reyhan's story

Reyhan, aged 39, was born in Mardin. She is married with six children. Reyhan began working in different jobs because her husband didn’t have a steady income.

After her friends introduced her to microcredit, Reyhan borrowed her first loan in 2010 and bought lingerie and makeup products. Previously, Reyhan was working from home but later, she had the financial strength to open up her own tailoring shop and turned her hobby into a profit.

Reyhan wishes to use her Kiva loan to buy a new sewing machine for her tailoring shop.

Reyhan is grateful for all the support from Kiva lenders.

This loan is special because:

it supports underserved women in rural parts of Turkey
