Kiva - August 2015

Hello again!  I'm excited to share that this month's Kiva loan has been 100% funded by returned investments - yeah!

Parveen (Pakistan)

A loan of $200 helps Parveen increase her tailoring business.

Parveen is 46 years old woman, she lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her 4 children. Her husband has been working in the public sector organization for many years. Parveen is also providing sewing services and earn the income to contribute with her husband to manage the household.

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

At the time of this post, Parveen's loan is 37% funded.  Kiva is also currently giving out free trials to new Kiva members, which means you get a free $25 USD sum to donate as you see fit if you join now.
