A loan of $1,300 helped a member to purchase a sewing machine for her tailoring business.


Jahan's Group's story

Jahan is a 48-year-old hard-working woman who lives in Pakistan with her husband, three sons, and two daughters.

One son is mason and the other one is a farmer by profession.

Jahan herself is a tailor, and she wants to generate more income by purchasing a new sewing machine. But she doesn't have enough savings to purchase a new sewing machine.

Therefore as a member of this seven-person lending group, Jahan has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. This will help her 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.

In this group: Jahan, Pashmeena, Nasreen, Samina, Shagufta, Parveen, Shazia
