A loan of $825 helped a member to buy clothes for sewing garments.


Shakeela's Group's story

Shakeela is a 43-year-old lady, and a mother of four daughters and a son. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband provides a facility for tailoring services; he operates his business from the local market.

Her husband has to purchase some clothes in bulk for sewing dresses. But due to insufficient financial means, he is unable to purchase the clothes in bulk. Therefore Shakeela requested a Kiva group loan with three members, from its field partner BRAC Pakistan.

With the help of this loan, she'll provide financial assistance to her husband by purchasing clothes for sewing garments for his business. This will also prove good for making savings for her entire family's needs.

She is very grateful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
