Amna has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Paksitan, which she will use for her husband's business. The loan amount will help her husband to buy welding materials, such as iron rods, welding rods, soldering rods, and iron sheets. This supply of materials will help him to earn more income. Amna will spend the profit amount to meet the household expenses.
In their area, the major problem is load shedding (rolling blackouts), which affect the business of her husband. She hopes that this issue will resolve soon. She is thankful to Kiva.
