Shameem's Group's story

Shameem is a 46-year-old independent woman. She lives in Punjab, Pakistan with her husband, two daughters and four sons. Her husband is running a boutique shop and all his sons help him in the business.

Since 2007, Shameem herself has been running an embroidery business and now she wants to expand her business so that she can increase her net income. For that reason and as a member of a 10-person lending group, she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase embroidery materials like cloth, needles and accessories, so that she can work more professionally and efficiently and can easily grow her business.

Shameem dreams of her children's better future and her husband's good health. She wants to live a good and simple life with her family. Salam and many thanks from her to all staff of Kiva and BRAC Pakistan. Note: In the picture Shameem is holding a passbook in her hand.
