Amina Group's story

Amina is 31 years old, a hardworking woman living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband and one son. Her husband is working in a garment shop. Her son is eight years old and he wants to be a doctor. Amina is working hard to fulfill the dreams of her son. She has been helping her husband by stitching clothes in her house from 2003, as her husband’s income is too low to meet the educational expenses of their son. She has been operating her business very efficiently and honestly and her clients always appreciate her work.

As a member of a two-person lending group, Amina has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. With the loan amount, she wants to purchase a new sewing machine as her old machine is not working properly and it’s very difficult for her to continue the business. She can increase her production by stitching more dresses in less time and she can work efficiently with a new sewing machine.

With the profit amount she wants to pay the educational expenses of her son. She is very hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for her and she is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their help.
