Sajida's Group's story

Sajida is 35 years old, a married woman and a mother of two sons and two daughters. She is living in a remote area of Punjab, Pakistan. Her husband, who is an auto mechanic by profession, is the only person earning money in the family but his income is not enough to fulfill the basic needs of his family. Therefore to contribute and to support her husband, Sajida wants to generate some income by sewing clothes. She already has an excellent experience of doing this for a year.

Sajida, as a member of three-person lending group, has applied for a loan from KIVA partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a sewing machine to start her business. With the profit she will provide her children a quality education and fulfill their other needs. Currently she is living in a rented house with her family, so her biggest aim in life is to build her own house and live happily with her family in the future.
