Naheeda's Group's story

Naheeda is a 33-year-old, hard-working and responsible woman living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband, two sons and one daughter. Naheeda's husband is a laborer but his income is not enough to meet the household expenses.

By stitching clothes, she helps her husband meet the family's needs and her children's educational expenses. She has been operating her business very efficiently and honestly for the past 15 years and her clients always appreciate her work.

Naheeda, as a member of four-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. With the loan, she will be purchasing a new sewing machine so that she can work more efficiently in the future and her production could be increased. As she is living in a rented house with her family, she dreams to build her own house. She also desires to expand her business and to provide quality education to her children. With the profit she earns, she will pay her house rent. Naheeda and her family are very thankful to both BRAC Pakistan and Kiva for their support. NOTE: In the picture Naheeda is raising her hand
