Shazia's Group's story

Shazia is 34 years old and lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her spouse and three children. Her husband is a tailor while all of her children are students.
Shazia as a member of 7-person lending group has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan in order to use it for purchasing clothing for her clothing business.
For the past 12 years she has been running a clothing business. Her income plays a vital role for the family.
She purchases clothes from different areas and sells them in the main market of her community.

She wants the financing to purchase more clothes to sell in the market, as her clothing stock is very low. Presently she is facing a very difficult time as she doesn't have the money to pay for her house rent and their children's school fees. Therefore she hopes that the loan will be positive one for her so that she can put aside some savings for the future.

She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
