Fareed is 39 years old. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her family. She is the mother of four children. She owns a small embroidery business in her house. Her embroidery cloths are liked by everyone. Presently her stock of embroidery material is almost gone. Therefore, she is interested in purchasing a variety of embroidery materials, including colorful threads, beads, stones, needle and cloth. For that purpose, Fareed has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. She is hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for her business.

With the profits, Fareed wants to build her own house. She hopes that she will earn sufficient profits so that she can easily pay back the loan amount as well as build her house. She is feeling very happy after taking the loan amount because this will help her to fulfill her needs.
