Shahida
Shahida is a 41-year-old, married woman and an enterprising woman with many dreams to fulfill. She lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

She has been in the business of clothes selling for almost 12 years. She purchases clothes from different areas and sells them in the main market, at a profitable amount.

Shahida is a responsible mother of three. Her husband makes his living as a daily worker whose income is not sufficient to meet the needs of the family members. She faced many problems in her early married life. There were days when her children often slept without having any food. But, now her contribution to the family income is playing a vital role in fulfilling the needs of the family members.

To cope with the increasing demand during the summer season, she has requested a loan of PKR 35,000 from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to purchase a variety of clothes in different colors. She hopes to get an increase in her net income and wishes to spend part of the profits on the improvement of her house. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
