A loan of $875 helped a member to purchase a sewing machine for stitching bags.


Parveen's Group's story

Parveen, age 51, is the leader of this borrower group. She adores her family, and her husband works very hard so that his family can have a good and respectable life. Her husband stitches bags and sells them in the main market. She helps her husband in his business as well.

Parveen, as a member of a two-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan with the goal of improving her husband's business. He will use the loan amount to purchase a sewing machine for stitching bags. With the profits expected from this loan, he intends to expand his business so that he can eventually construct a small house for his family.

Parveen hopes that the loan will be helpful for her husband's business. She is thankful to Kiva lenders and to BRAC Pakistan.
