Nusrat is a borrower from BRAC Pakistan. She has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan for her brother. Her brother is the only earning person for the family. He is an excellent tailor. He can stitch all types of dresses for both men and women. He has only one sewing machine to complete customers order on time. Every week he has a lot of tasks and it gets very difficult for him to complete the orders on time. Therefore, he would like to purchase one more machine and hire one worker to help him in completing orders. This will help him to cope with customer needs more efficiently.

Nusrat hopes that the loan will be a productive one for her brother's shop. She feels happy to help him.

Nusrat says thanks to all Kiva staff and Kiva lenders
