Nighat is the age of 37, and lives with her 5 children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband has been running a mobile shop for 7 years and earns sufficient income. Her husband troubleshoots the mobile problems, sells mobile accessories such as charger, body, data cable, etc., and provides the recharge facilities of different networks. Nowadays there is an increase in demand for accessories and for recharge; sometimes he has to refuse his customers. But he does not have savings to further invest into the business because he spends his all income over household expenses.

Therefore, Nighat requested a loan for her husband so that he could be empowered to buy additional accessories and extra credit for the recharge facility. Nighat says thanks to Kiva and to its field partner over this honorable support.
