A loan of $525 helped to buy fabric, thread, and needles.


Shaheen's story

Shaheen is a 50-year-old woman who lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her 5 children. Her husband has worked in the public sector for many years and is responsible for fulfilling the needs of the family. Shaheen provides sewing services to earn income to help her husband meet the household expenses.

She needs needles, threads, fabric, and machine oil for business purposes, 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 items and help her to increase monthly sales and profits by providing better sewing services.

Shaheen is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
