Shahida's Group's story

Shahida is a 33-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of 5 children. Her husband owns a fruit shop in the market which is the only source of income for the family. He sells apples, bananas and oranges in his shop. Presently he is interested to offer more variety to his customers which will help him to increase his net income and savings as well. However due to the lack of income he finds it difficult. Therefore his wife Shahida as a member of a two-person lending group has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan so that she can help her husband to purchase a variety of fruits from the field and sell them in the market at a profitable price. With the profit her husband wants to grow his business in the future. Shahida is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
