Shumaila
Shumaila lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of four children. Her husband owns a restaurant, which is the only source of income for the family. Her husband wants to purchase plates, spoons, plastic chairs and tables for the restaurant. However, due to the lack of finances, he finds it difficult. Therefore, Shumaila has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase crockery for her husband's restaurant. She is hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for the business. With the profits expected from this loan, he intends to expand his business so that he can eventually construct a small house for his family. Shumaila hopes that the loan will be helpful for her husband's business. She is thankful to Kiva lenders and to BRAC Pakistan.
