Rasoolan is a 44-year-old housewife. She is a mother of 6 children who lives in Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband owns a vegetable shop in the market, which is the only source of income for the family. He sells a variety of fresh vegetables in his shop after purchasing them from the field. Presently, he is interested in offering a greater variety to his customers, which will help him to increase his net income and savings. However, due to the lack of expenses, he finds it difficult. Therefore, his wife, Rasoolan, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. This will help her husband to purchase vegetables from the field and to sell them in the market at a profitable price. With the profit, her husband wants to grow his business in the future. Rasoolan is very thankful to Kiva lenders and to BRAC Pakiatan.
