A loan of $2,500 helped a member to purchase a sewing machine.


Safdar's Group's story

Safdar is a 50-year-old hardworking and independent woman. She lives in Pakistan with her husband and two sons. Her husband is jobless. As she has sufficient skills in tailoring, she wants to generate some income by stitching clothes so that she can meet the family's needs and expenses. But to start her tailoring business, she needs a tailoring (sewing) machine. For that, Safdar, as a member of a 10-person group, has requested a loan from KIVA partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a sewing machine to satisfy the needs of her clients more professionally. She hopes, with the help of the loan, to reach her desired net income and be able to save for their future. She dreams of giving her children a quality education. With the profit, she will open her own boutique in the future. Lots of prayer for BRAC and KIVA from Safdar. Note: In the picture, Safdar is holding a passbook in her hand.
