Shahida's Group's story

Shahida is a 25-year-old young, hard working, married woman. She lives in Pakistan with her husband and son. Her husband is jobless and her son is four years old. She is living in a rented house with her family. Shahida is a tailor and she is the only person in the family earning an income. Her monthly net income from her business is not sufficient to meet her high expenses and house rent. That is why, as a member of an eight-person lending group, she has requested a loan from KIVA partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a sewing machine and clothing to grow her business. She hopes, with the help of the loan, to reach her desired net income and be able to save for their future. With the profits, she wants to purchase new furniture for her house. She dreams of giving her children a quality education.
