A loan of $900 helped a member to purchase a new tailoring machine and some tailoring materials.

Sajida's Group's story

Sajida is 50 years old and a hardworking and independent woman. She lives in Punjab Pakistan with her husband, two sons, and two daughters. Her two daughters and one son are studying. Her husband is an auto mechanic, but his income is too low to meet the basic expenses of his family.

So since 2006 Sajida, by stitching clothes, has helped her husband to meet the household's and children's education expenses. And now she is interested in continuing to grow her business by purchasing a new tailoring machine and tailoring materials like thread and clothing. For that, as a member of a four-person lending group, she has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan.

She is very hopeful that the loan amount will bring out a positive change in their life. Note: In the picture Sajida is holding a passbook in her hand.
