In the Kathmandu Valley, clothing is made to order. The streets are lined with tailor stalls where store owners sell material and work their sewing machines. These skilled tailors make school uniforms for children as well as the traditional women's kurta surwal and men's daura surwal. With a Kiva loan, Patan BPW borrowers are able to purchase additional cloth materials or sewing machines that will increase production and profitability.
