A loan of $1,025 helped a member to purchase a new sewing machine for her tailoring business.

Yasmeen's Group's story

Yasmeen is a 35-year-old hard-working woman. She lives in Rawalpindi Pakistan with her husband, three sons, and three daughters. All of them are students. Her husband's income is insufficient to meet the family's needs, so Yasmeen is trying to help him fulfill their needs by stitching clothes.

She herself is a tailor, and she wants to generate more income by purchasing a new sewing machine. She will extend her business if she gets a good amount of profit in the future. Yasmeen is a member of a six-person group and has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a new sewing machine to stitch more dresses and to satisfy the needs of her clients more professionally.

She hopes, with the help of the loan, to reach her desired net income and be able to save for their future. She dreams of giving her children a quality education.
