Kouser's story

Kouser is a 57-year-old, married woman, residing in the town of Lahore, Pakistan. She has a husband, four daughters, and two sons. Her husband is involved in a tailoring business, in which he provides services of stitching clothes for his customers. He is very expert in his profession, and people like his stitched clothes a lot. Kouser's husband has hired a new worker for his shop, due to the burden of work. He needs a sewing machine for the new worker's use. Kouser requested a loan of Rs. 25,000 from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband could buy the new machine for his employee's use. Kousar hopes that the new worker will work efficiently, and this will cause an increase in her family's income, and their savings, as well. Kouser is very glad after taking this loan, and very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
