Balqees
Balqees is 48 years old and a housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of five children. Her husband owns a vegetable shop in the market which is the only source of income for the family. He sells a variety of vegetables in his shop. Presently he is interested to offer more variety to his customers which will help him to increase his net income and savings as well. However due to the lack of funds he finds it difficult.

Therefore his wife Balqees has requested a loan of 32,000 PKR from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan, so that she can help her husband to purchase a variety of vegetables from the field and sell them in the market at a profitable price. With the profit her husband wants to grow his business in the future. Balqees is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
