Zareena's Group's story

Zareena is a 56-year-old hardworking and decent woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband, 5 sons and 2 daughters. One son is a carpenter and one is a tailor by profession. Her husband is a tailor as well. His income is insufficient to meet the family's needs, so Zareena is trying to help him fulfill their needs by stitching clothes at her home. She is providing tailoring services in her community, 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.

Zareena is a member of a 5-person group and has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to purchase a sewing machine to stitch up 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.
