Parveen's Group's story

Parveen, a 51-year-old hard working woman, lives in Pakistan with her husband, two sons, and three daughters. Her husband works in a school as a cleaner. One son works at a service station. One daughter is a schoolteacher.

Parveen herself is a tailor, and she wants to generate more income by purchasing a new sewing machine and some tailoring materials like threads, needles etc.

Parveen is a member of a three-person group and has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase needed items so that she can satisfy the needs of her clients more professionally and efficiently. She hopes, with the help of the loan, to reach her desired net income and be able to save for their future.
