Shameem's Group's story

Shameem is a 54-year-old woman. She is a mother of four children. Her husband and eldest son work in a hotel. Their income is insufficient to pay for their household expenses. She is an excellent embroiderer. She provides embroidery services in her community and sometimes sells her excellent work in the main market. By doing so, she gets a good amount of profit. Currently, she doesn't have enough embroidery materials to continue her business. Therefore, as a member of an eight-person group, Shameem has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. With the loan, Shameem will purchase a variety of embroidery materials including needles, threads in a variety of colours, clothing, etc. This will help her to continue her business as well as to increase her net sales and income.

She dreams of providing quality education for her children.
