Rakhshanda's Group's story

Rukhsana is 29 years old and is representing herself by raising her hand.

She has taken responsibility for all of her group members. Her group consists of 5 members; some members are new and a few are old ones. All of the members have taken a loan according to their needs.

The featured borrower, Rukhsana, took a loan for her husband’s business. In fact her husband owns a computer composing and designing shop. He uses a computer for composing and designing. A few days ago his computer’s motherboard was blown due to a fluctuation in electricity. He saved most of the composing backup data on the hard drive but he is unable to continue his work without a motherboard. Her husband’s business is not profitable and their savings are not enough to buy a new motherboard.

Rukhsana is the mother of four children, all of whom go to school daily. Her husband has to pay for the educational expenses and those of the household as well by himself. His monthly income based upon his single source of income, due to the problem with the computer affects all household expenses and is disturbing.

Therefore, Rukhsana requested a loan for her husband so that he would be able to buy a new motherboard to continue his composing business. She is very thankful to Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan.
