Rashida
Rashida, 35, is educated, well-mannered and the responsible mother of one child. Her husband works in a government organization. For a better future for her son, Rashida sells ladies’ shoes part time from her house.

Rashida has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. She wants to open a shop in the market to run her business properly. She is not getting enough customers by selling from her house.

With this loan, she would purchase a variety of shoes and, in this way, expand her business. With her profits, she would send her son to the best school in town.

Rashida is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for helping her.
