Naheeda is a 40-year-old, married housewife who is living with her husband and two sons in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Since 2005, her husband has been running a shoe shop in the market, while Naheeda sells shoes at home, as well.

Naheeda has requested a loan from Kiva partner, BRAC Pakistan, to help her husband to purchase a greater variety of shoes for the shop, so that they can increase their sales and net income.

She dreams for her children's bright future and desires to build her own house since she is living in a rented house with her family. She is very much thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva.
