A loan of $300 helped to buy a juki (sewing) machine for her daughter's tailoring work.


Rehana's story

Rehana is a 57-year-old woman. She is living in Lahore, Pakistan.
Her financial condition is not good; her husband is an old person and mostly stays at home.
She is the mother of two daughters and six sons, all of her children are unqualified. Her sons are doing jobs but earning very low income.
One of her daughters sews clothes at home; she sews ladies dresses. She has been using a local sewing machine which is very slow and not clean. Due to its low quality, the sewing machine has become out of order. She wants to enhance the beauty of her stitching, so she wants to buy a juki (sewing) machine instead of a local machine.
Therefore, Rehana requested a loan for her daughter so that she could buy a new machine to enhance her tailoring work.
Rehana is very thankful to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
