Farida is a 47-year-old woman who is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her family. She is a mother of three sons. One son is doing furniture work. Her husband owns a small shop, but his income is not enough to meet the household expenses. She is a very hardworking and independent woman. By stitching clothes, she helps her husband meet the family's needs and her children's education expenses. She has been operating her business very efficiently and honestly for the past two years, and her clients always appreciate her work.

As a member of three-person lending group, Farida has requested a loan from Kiva 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.
