Nighat's Group's story

Nighat is 45 years old, a hardworking woman living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband, three sons and one daughter. Three of her children are currently studying in primary school. Nighat's husband is a laborer but his income is not enough to meet the household expenses.

Nighat is a very responsible woman. 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 11 years, and her clients always appreciate her work.

Nighat, as a member of 3-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. With the loan amount, she will be purchasing a new sewing machine so that she can work more efficiently in the future and her production can increase. As she is living in a rented house with her family, she dreams of building her own house. She also desires to expand her business and to provide quality education to her children. With the profit amount she will pay her house rent.

Nighat and her family are very much thankful to both BRAC Pakistan and Kiva for their support.
