A loan of $350 helped to buy a sewing machine for her tailoring business..


Zahida's story

Zahida, age 35, is a married, hard-working mother who is helping her family by providing tailoring services in her community. Her husband has a job in a firm and his earnings were so poor that Zahinda started tailoring in her home. She has been doing this work for many years and earns sufficient money to feed her family. She is very expert in her art and knows the techniques of stitching very well. Most of her customers belong to the neighborhood or are her relatives. To help her continue the operation of her business, she has requested for a loan to buy a new sewing machine and some packs of zippers and buttons to meet the increasing demand. In addition to repaying the loan, she will use part of the revenues to pay for personal expenses. Zahida is very thankful to the Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
