Her husband is a manufacturer; he manufactures plastic toys over a molding machine. He takes orders for manufacturing plastic toys and plastic accessories as per contracts. He appointed labourers over molding machines on daily wages. In this way, he is also helping unemployed people in his region. For the manufacturing of different plastic accessories he needs raw materials of different categories and qualities. Recently, he made a huge contract with a manufacturing company for making plastic accessories. For this is reason he needs crushed plastic raw materials in large quantities. Therefore, Nusrat requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband would be able to buy crushing plastic raw materials for manufacturing.
Through his profits, her husband will increase the daily wages of his workers, make some savings and look after his children in a better way. Nusrat is very happy after taking this loan, and says thanks to Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan.
