Nargis is 52 years old and a housewife. She lives with her husband and five children in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

Since 2002, her husband has been running a general store, and he works very hard to meet his family's needs. Due to their large family size and low monthly income, they are facing many problems. Her husband needs additional capital for the growth of his business, so Nargis has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to invest in her husband’s shop.

With the loan money, her husband will be able to buy a variety of goods for his general store, such as rice, sugar, soap, cereals, milk, and utility items. This will satisfy his clients more professionally as well as increase his savings to provide a better future for their children. The profit would be used to expand the business and pay for their household expenses.

Nargis and her husband are very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for their family.
