A loan of $450 helped to buy sequins, pearls, and various color threads for her embroidery work.


Naseem's story

Naseem is taking a loan to buy stocks of threads, fancy cloths, sequins, and pearls of various colors for embroidery work at home. She has been doing embroidery for many years and feeding her children. Naseem is 54 years old and the mother of six children. Her husband works at a small firm for very low daily wages and comes home very late at night. Naseem has to manage routine work and complete her tasks related to embroidery, as well. Due to demand, Naseem is facing a shortage of material and is unable to do her fine embroidery. Therefore, she has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that she can reduce the shortage of raw materials for embroidery. With this loan, she will buy stocks of thread, fancy cloths, precious stones, sequins, and pearls of various colors. Naseem is very thankful to the Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
