Fozia is a 30-year-old woman. She lives with her family in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of four children and is a responsible and hard-working housewife.

Fozia's husband sells cement sacks in the main market which is the only source of income for the family. However, his monthly net income is not enough to meet the household's needs.

Fozia has requested a loan for her husband in the amount of PKR 20,000 from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. With the loan, her husband will purchase cement sacks to sell. By doing so, he will easily increase his net income and savings for the future.

Fozia is hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for her husband's business. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
