A loan of $725 helped a member to purchase clothes to sell.


Shamim's Group's story

Shamim is a 58-year-old married woman and a mother of six children. She adores her family. Her husband works very hard so that his family can have a good and respectable life. Her husband owns a clothing business which is the only source of income for his family. He purchases a variety of clothes from factories and sells them at a profitable price.

Shamim is a member of a 2-person lending group and has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, for her husband. He will use the loan amount to increase his supply of clothing so that he can respond quickly to customers’ needs. He plans to expand his business with the additional income he earns. Shamim hopes that the loan will be helpful for her husband's business. Her house is in very bad condition, so she wants to use the profits to maintain his house. She is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
