A loan of $950 helped a member to purchase a new sewing machine.


Kaneez Fatima Group's story

Kaneez , a hard-working 51-year-old woman, lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband, 2 sons, and 2 daughters. One son and both daughters are studying, and her husband is an auto mechanic. His income is insufficient to meet the family's needs, so Kaneez is trying to help him fulfill their needs by stitching clothes. She herself is a tailor, and she wants to generate more income by purchasing a new sewing machine. She will extend her business if she gets a good amount of profits in the future.

As a part of 4-person lending group, Kaneez has requested a loan from KIVA partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a sewing machine to stitch more dresses and to satisfy the needs of her clients more professionally. She hopes, with the help of the loan, to reach her desired net income and to be able to save for her family’s future. She dreams of giving her children a quality education.
