Kousar's Group's story

Kousar is a 45-year-old married woman. She has been living with her husband in the area of Lahore, Pakistan, and she is the mother of four children.

Kousar is doing embroidery work by hand at home and financially supporting her family. She belongs to a poor family. Her husband’s income is very poor so she decided to start embroidery work at home. She had been learning this art since her childhood and now she adopted it for her occupation. She enabled herself to be independent and earn sufficient income.

Kousar requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a stock of thread, silk, fancy sequins and pearls of various colors. She hopes that this loan will prove beneficial for her and her family. Kousar is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
