Musarat's Group's story

Musarat is 46 years old and a hardworking mother of five children. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, along her husband and children. She is a very skilled woman and she is very expert in stitching dresses. She has been doing this tailoring work for seven years. All the people in her area are very well satisfied and happy with her work. She provides her services at a very reasonable price, and that's why her work is increasing day by day. Musarat, as a member of a two-person borrower group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. She wants to expand her business by purchasing one more sewing machine. She would be able to stitch dresses more appropriately and efficiently in less time with a new sewing machine. This would increase her net income and savings. She would spend the profit amount on the education of her children. In the picture Musarat is raising her hand.
