Shehnaz's Group's story

Shehnaz is a 36-year-old woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband, 2 daughters and 2 sons. All of her children are students while her husband is a painter. She lives in a rented house and sometimes they don't have enough money to pay electricity bills and house rent with all the other household and children's education expenses.

Shenaz is a very hardworking and independent woman. By stitching clothes, she helps her husband meet the family's needs and her children's education expenses. She has been operating her business very efficiently and honestly since 2000. Her clients always appreciate her work. Presently, she is interested in purchasing a tailoring machine so that she can work more efficiently. This will help her to save some time and increase her income as well. For that, she has requested for a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan.

As she is living in a rented house with her family, Shehnaz dreams to build her own house. She also desires to increase her business and to provide a quality education to her children. Shehnaz and her family are very thankful to both BRAC and Kiva.
