Sajida Group's story

Sajida is a 45-year-old hardworking woman from Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She lives with her husband, two sons and two daughters. Her husband is a mobile technician and runs his own shop.

Sajida previously worked in a clinic, but after getting married she left the job, and for the past ten years she has been running a one-room shop in her house where she sells clothes after purchasing them from different cities.

At the start, she faced many problems in her new business, but now she is a successful businesswoman. Sajida's husband is very caring, and he helps her in purchasing clothes from different cities. Now she is interested in buying more clothes to sell, so that she can offer a variety of clothing to her clients.

As a member of a two-person lending group, she has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan. With the help of the profit, she is planning to extend her business by opening a new shop in a market. She wants to make some savings for her children as well. She desires to provide quality education to her children and dreams of their bright future. She is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva.
