Noreen's Group's story

Noreen is a very supportive lady. Along with her household responsibilities, she also operates a sewing business. She receives orders from neighborhood clients and fulfills them on time to earn profits for her family. She is married to J. M. and has four children. Three of them are studying while youngest one is only 5 years old and has not started getting an education yet. Her husband sells wheat and cotton. Her brother-in-law also lives with her family. He is 26 years old and in the same business as J. M.. Noreen has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Asasah, to improve her sewing business. With the loan, she will buy a new sewing machine that will help her complete her work in less time and produce good quality clothes. She has been in her business for the past eight years and is very confident that an investment will be productive for her business and take her business to a more profitable position. Noreen lives in Khanewal, which is a small city in Punjab, Pakistan, known for its agricultural industry. She has been living in the Marzipura area in a two-room brick house with her family for the past 20 years. In the photo, the lady with a book (an Asasah passbook) is Noreen.
