Waliyat's story

Waliyat is a 50-years-old married woman. She has been living with her husband in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of five daughters and four sons. She does embroidery work by hand at home to help financially support her family. She belongs to a poor family, her husband’s income is very poor so that she decided to start embroidery work at home. She learned these arts in her childhood, now she has adopted them for her occupation. She makes herself independent and earns sufficient income. She requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase stocks of threads, silk, fancy sequins, and pearls of various colours. She hopes that this loan will prove beneficial for her and for her family. Waliyat is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
