Sabeen's story

Sabeen is a 30-year-old hard working tailor living in Punjab, Pakistan, with her son and a daughter. Her husband is a shoe maker and she helps her husband in making shoes as well. Sabeen's husband does not have enough income to fulfill the basic needs of his family; therefore, by stitching clothes, Sabeen helps her husband to meet their family's needs and her children's education expenses. But in the past month, her sewing machine had stopped working, which means she is not able to continue her tailoring business.

Sabeen has good beautician skills as well and her dream is to open her own beauty salon in the future.

Sabeen has applied for a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan for purchasing a new sewing machine and sewing materials, such as thread, needles, buttons, scissors, cloth etc. She is hopeful that with the help of requested loan amount, she will be able to continue her business and increase their monthly income as well.
