Suriya is 59, and lives with her three children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her son has been running a mobile shop for several years and earning sufficient income. Her son troubleshoots the mobile phones, sells the mobile accessories such as chargers, body, data cables, etc., and provides the recharge facilities for different networks.

Nowadays there's a lot of demand for mobiles, accessories, and for recharge. But he does not have savings to further invest into the business, because he spends all his income on household expenses.

Therefore, Suriya requested a loan for her son so that he can buy additional mobiles and accessories.

Suriya thanks Kiva and the field partner for this honorable support.
