She is a mother of 5 children and is motivated to provide for her family. To cope with the increasing demand of her customers, she requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase stocks of leather. She hopes to get a boost in her earnings through her large sales. She is in her first loan cycle, and she assures us that she will show an excellent repayment behavior. She wishes to utilize a portion of the revenue to provide a quality education for her children.
Shamshad says thank you to Kiva and to its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
