Parveen, age 27, is a responsible mother, and living happily in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. This is her first loan with the BRAC and Kiva.
Her husband owns a scrap shop; he deals with the scrap iron, aluminum, plastic bottles, and waste papers. He has been purchasing scrap goods from the common people and sells it to the recycling factories. Nowadays due to household expenses, he does not have the amount to buy scrap goods, and does not have scrap to sell to get money.

Therefore, Parveen requested a loan for her husband so that he can buy scrap goods, establish his enterprise, and make some savings to meet sudden needs or incidents.

She is very impressed with this honorable support, and shows her wish to take more loans after the payment of this loan. She thanks Kiva and it's field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
