Haleema belongs to an ultra-poor family -- that is why she cannot afford the educational expenses of all her children. One of her sons goes with his father to help him in his daily tasks. Her husband owns a blacksmith shop in which he provides the services of welding. He also provides door-to-door services to his customers. Due to an increase in the iron’s prices, he is unable to buy sufficient welding material, such as welding rods, soldering rods, etc. to carry on his business.
To fulfill the demand of his customers and to run his enterprise, Haleema's husband needs some capital to buy welding material. Haleema requested a loan for her husband from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that he would be able to buy material to carry on his business.
Haleema is very glad and thankful to Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
