Since 2001, Zubaida has been running a small general store to generate a second source of income for her family. She has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan, to expand her business. She wants to buy a variety of goods like milk, sugar, rice, soap, detergent, creams etc. She wants to introduce some new items in her general store in order to fulfill the increasing demands of customers and to increase her savings.
Zubaida would reinvest the profit amount in her general store and a part of it to pay her household expenses and for the education of her children. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support. She is very hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for her.
