A loan of $450 helped to buy raw material for sewing seat covers for vehicles.

Salma's story

Salma is 41 years old and is living with her husband and children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband provides the services to change the seat covers of vehicles. He purchases ready-made seat covers and stitches as well. His shop is situated in the vehicles' workshop market. He has to be picked by a customer and then must convince them to change the seat covers of their vehicle.

He does not take too much of the customer's time and quickly changes the seat covers. Earlier he was providing services only for motorbikes seats, but now he wants to provide services for the various cars as well. For this purpose he wants to buy various colors and types of rexine (an artificial leather) so that he could show his arts for sewing car seats also.

Therefore, Salma requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can buy various types of rexine.

Salma gives thanks to Kiva and their field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
