A loan of $225 helped to expand her tailoring business.


Noureen's story

A hardworking and diligent woman, 38-year-old Noureen lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband and three children. Only two of her children are going to school because she can’t afford the educational expenses of all. Her husband is a wood cutter by profession and he has a very low monthly income.



Noureen is a very responsible and skilled woman using her tailoring skills to generate an additional source of income for her family. She has been stitching clothes and dresses for 14 years, and her clients are very well satisfied with her work.



Noureen has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to expand her business. She wants to open a tailoring center and needs to purchase two new sewing machines. She will reinvest her profits in her business and pay her children's educational expenses. She desires to send all of her children to school and is very hopeful that the loan will result in progress for her family.
