A loan of $575 helped to pay for maintenance for a lathe machine and to buy additional cutting tools.

Jamila's story

Jamila is a 48-year-old lady who is living with her husband and five children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her son is a turner by profession; he manufactures and renews spare parts for vehicle. He has been operating a lathe machine for many years and can easily renew or manufacture spare parts for various vehicles. His lathe machine is now out of order due to continuously working and needs maintenance. He has spent his all savings to buy raw materials for manufacturing spare parts and does not have cash on hand to fix the lathe machine.

Therefore, Jamila has requested a loan for her son so that he can fix the lathe machine and can buy additional cutting tools. She is relaxed now because she hopes that her son can easily operate his lathe machine again. She is very thankful to Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
