A loan of $1,250 helped a member to purchase a new tailoring machine for her tailoring business.

Nazi's Group's story

Ms. Nazi is a 35-year-old woman and a mother of three children. Her husband lives abroad and all of the children are students.

Nazi is very talented and excels in the work of sewing clothes. Since 2009, she has been operating a tailoring business at her home. In this way she manages to provide for her children. To cope with the increasing demand of her customers, she needs to purchase a new tailoring machine. But due to the lack of money, she is unable to purchase it.

Therefore, as a member of seven-person lending group, Nazi has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to cover the cost of purchasing a new tailoring machine. In this way, she will be able to complete the orders on time.

Nazi intends to utilize part of the profits on the betterment of her family members and on providing quality education to her children.
