Safeena's Group's story

Safina is a 42-year-old independent woman living in Pakistan with her husband, two daughters, and three sons. Her eldest son is doing a private job while rest of her children are studying in the school. Her husband is a taxi driver while Safina is a very hard-working tailor. Since 2010 she has been operating her business very efficiently. They live in a rented house and sometimes she doesn't have enough money to pay the rent.

As a member of 10 person lending group, Safina has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a new tailoring machine for the growth of her business. With the profit she will open a tailoring shop as currently she is doing all work at home. She will also purchase more items like clothes and tailoring accessories in the future. She wants to give her children a good education so that they can have a better life. Safina dreams to open her new tailoring shop asap so that she can increase her sales and income. Lots of prayers and many thanks for all staff of BRAC and KIVA from her.
