She belongs to a small family. She has two children only. Her husband’s income is not good, but due to less family members she can easily manage the household expenses.
She is taking a loan for her husband’s painting shop; in fact, her husband provides the services of banner writing for advertisements or publishing politician’s messages. His writing is very attractive because he has been writing banners for many years and has a great practice doing banner writing.
He uses pieces of cheap white cloth, paint, and brushes for banner writing.
At his shop, only two colors are available for banner writing. Nowadays a theater director gave him a contract to draw the pictures of casted actors, but he does not have multicolored paint canes. Therefore, Mumtaz requested a loan for her husband so that he could buy multicolored canes of paint.
Mumtaz says thanks to kiva and to its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
