A loan of $250 helped to buy needles, reels of thread, buttons and laces for tailoring work.


Fozia's story

Fozia is a 33-year-old married woman and a mother of four children. She has been doing business in tailoring since five years ago to support her husband financially. She admitted that if her husband worked alone for their family, then he would not be able to meet the expenses of the household with the educational needs of their children. That is why she started tailoring at home to support her family well. Both she and her husband manage their household while operating a business. At this time, she is working hard to continuously provide income for their daily expenses.

Therefore, she requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, to purchase more reels of thread along with packs of buttons, laces and zippers. In this way, she will be able to stitch up more dresses. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community.

Fozia hopes to grow her business, and dreams of giving a good and quality education to her children through all her hard work in her business. Fozia is very thankful to Kiva and to its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
