A loan of $1,275 helped a member to purchase a new sewing machine for her tailoring busssines, and some clothes to sell in the market.


Kosar's Group's story

Ms Kosar is a 30-year-old hard-working woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband.

Her husband is a truck driver. His income is insufficient to meet the household expenses such as electricity bills, gas bills, utility bills etc, so Kosar is trying to help him by stitching clothes at her home. She wants to generate more income by purchasing a new sewing machine, and some clothes to sell in the market.

Kosar, as a member of six person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. This will help her to satisfy the needs of her clients more professionally. She hopes that the loan will be a productive one for her. She will extend her business if she gets a good amount of profit in the future.
