A loan of $275 helped to purchase a sewing machine.

Sultana's story

Sultana, a 39-year-old hardworking mother of four children, is the sole supporter of her family, as her husband died six years ago. Very experienced in stitching clothes and dresses, Sultana has been using her tailoring skills for the past six years to generate some income for her family. She is facing many financial problems right now due to low monthly income and large family size.

Sultana has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to expand her business. She wants to purchase a new sewing machine so that one of her daughters can help her in stitching clothes, thereby increasing production. She will use the additional profits to pay the household expenses.
