Riffat is a 44-year-old woman who lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her four children. Her husband is responsible for fulfilling the needs of family. Riffat is also providing sewing services and earning an income to contribute with her husband towards managing the household.

She needs different kinds of goods such as needles, threads, pieces of cloth, and machine oil for her business purpose. But due to insufficient financial means, she is unable to purchase these accessories. Therefore, she has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner BRAC Pakistan. This loan will enable her to purchase these accessories and help her to increase her monthly sales and profit by providing better sewing services.

Riffat is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
