A loan of $325 helped to buy a sewing machine for tailoring.


Shakeela's story

Shakeela is 38 years old and has been sewing clothes for the past several years.
She sews for the people of her community and uses the income received to support her entire family. Her sewing machine is out of order and due to a lack of savings and funds, she is unable to meet the daily demands of her customers. For this reason; she has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan.
She intends to use this loan to buy a new sewing machine so that she may generate a healthier source of income.
Shakeela hopes that this loan will prove positive and beneficial for her and will be the cause for getting more income. She thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
