A loan of $375 helped a member to purchase new varieties of clothing to sell.

Saima Group's story

Saima is a 35-year-old responsible married mother living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, along with her husband and five children. Her husband is a government employee and three of her children are currently studying in schools. Her husband’s income is not enough to meet the household and educational expenses of their children and they are facing many hurdles in life. Saima has been helping her husband by running a clothing business from her house for the past five years. She has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to expand her business. The main purpose of the loan is to buy new varieties of clothing at a cheaper rate and then sell them for a profit. In the future she is looking forward to opening a small boutique in the market. She will save some money from the profits and pay the educational expenses of her children. She has a bright vision and this loan could help her to fulfill her dreams. She is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva for their support.
