Parveen's Group's story

Parveen is a 35-year-old, married woman. She has been doing embroidery by machine, at home, for the past five years, to support her family. In fact her husband is also doing the same work at home, but he earns an insufficient income to support their family. So she helps her husband in his tasks related to the embroidery. Also she sells embroidered dresses in her town. By this time, she has attained a regular list of customers and makes enough to contribute to the family income. She has become expert in embroidery by machine. She wants more raw materials for embroidery, so that she could easily cope with the increasing demand for her art.

She is a mother of two sons and four daughters. She hopes to get a boost in her earnings through her large sales. She wishes to use a portion of her revenue to provide a quality education for her children. Parveen thanks Kiva and the field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
