Fahmeeda, age 42, is a homemaker who lives with her family in Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband is a welder by profession and has run a welding shop in the area for some time. This shop is the only source of income for the family.

Fahmeeda has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan in order to purchase iron rods, soldering rods, welding rods, and welding machines for her husband's shop, as these items are almost depleted from the shop at this time.

She is hopeful that the loan will be a positive and productive one for the business and for her family.

She is thankful to Kiva lenders and to BRAC Pakistan.
