A loan of $425 helped a member to purchase dresses and clothes for the garment shop.

Rafeela Group's story

Rafeela is a 24-year-old responsible mother of two children. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan along her husband and children in a rented house. Her husband has run a garment shop for five years and this is the only source of income for her family. Her household expenses are very large compared to the business income, because she is facing a lot of financial problems in life.
As a member of a two person group, Rafeela has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. With the loan amount her husband would buy new varieties of dresses, shirts, jeans, and suits to attract more customers. His sales would increase and his monthly income and savings would also be increased. With the profit amount Rafeela would purchase her own house.
She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for helping her. NOTE: In the picture Rafeela is raising her hand.
