Reena's Group's story

Reena is a mother of three children who lives in a remote part of Pakistan with her family. Her husband is a government employee.

Reena is a very hardworking and independent woman. She always tries to fulfill all the needs of her children. With all of the household responsibilities, she is trying to help her husband to increase the family's net income as well. She is providing tailoring services in her community.

Presently, Reena is interested in purchasing some tailoring materials like thread, needles, cloth, etc. to grow her business. To do that, she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan, as a member of a seven-person lending group.

With this profit, Reena is going to purchase new tailoring machines and would like to expand her business in the future. She is thankful to Kiva for this loan.
