Parveen's story

Parveen is 34 years old, and is a hardworking and diligent women living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband and four children. Her husband is a laborer and his income is insufficient to meet the household expenses. Three of her children are going to school.

Since 2005, Parveen has been operating an embroidery business, however due to financial constraints she is unable to expand her business.

She has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan so that she can purchase new varieties of embroidery items including needles, colored threads, beads and buttons etc. This will not only help her to grow her business but will also increase her net income and savings. With the profit amount she is going to pay the educational expenses of her children and save some money for their marriages. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
