This is 28-year-old Asma. She is married and has 5 children, and lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

In 1998, her husband established a business selling clothes in his nearby town. Now, his young children are growing and their needs as well. With the rapid increase in the necessities of their family, he wants to grow his business. He does not have any other source of income to fulfill the needs of his family so he wants to grow his current business, but he does not have sufficient money.

Asma requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband could buy a variety of clothes for ladies and gents to sell.

Asma hopes that this loan will bring positive changes in the enterprise of her husband and in her family as well. She is very thankful to Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
