A loan of $675 helped a member to buy raw materials for shoe making.

Noreen's Group's story

Noreen is a 33-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of five children.

Noreen has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, for her husband. He is a cobbler and an expert in his profession. He has been making shoes for many years; this is the reason he has a lot of experience with his profession. He sews leather and Rexine shoes by machine and attaches the sole through stitching by hand.

In this way, he is getting income for his family. He has been making shoes at home and has now established a shop to continue his business on a wider level. He does not have cash in hand to buy the initial raw materials for making shoes.

Therefore, Noreen has requested a loan for her husband so he can buy raw materials such as leather, Rexine, and glue for making shoes.

Noreen thanks Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
