A loan of $1,200 helped a member to purchase a new sewing machine for her tailoring business.


Yasmeen's Group's story

Yasmeen is a 45 year old woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She is a mother of five children. She has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan for her tailoring business.

The loan will help her to expand her tailoring business, which she has been running very efficiently since 1998. She wants the financing to invest in purchasing a new sewing machine. She believes in hard work and honesty. She is confident that the loan will bring positive changes to her business and will increase her profit.

Yasmeen has two buffaloes as well. She sells their milk in the market. With the profit, she wants to purchase one more buffalo to increase her milk selling business also. This will help her to increase her net income and savings.

She is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
