A loan of $2,075 helped a member to purchase a sewing machine to expand her tailoring business.

Azka's Group's story

Azka is a 34-year-old woman who lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband and two sons. Both of her sons are students. Her husband is a taxi driver and in recent weeks he has not been able to generate any income as the engine of his taxi is not working properly. Azka herself is an efficient tailor who has operated her business very well since 2008. Her husband is very happy that his wife has been doing a great job.

Azka, as a member of a 10-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan. With the loan amount, she will be purchasing a new sewing machine so that she can expand her business. With the profit, she will save some money and repay the loan amount. She wants to purchase a new taxi for her husband. As she is living in a rented house with her family, she dreams to build her own house. She also desires to increase her business and to provide a quality education for her children. Many thanks from her to all the staff of Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
