Shakeela is a 25-year-old, hard-working housewife. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband.

Shakeela's husband is an electrician, by profession. He runs an electronics shop in his village, but his monthly income is not enough to fulfill the household expenses of his family. Therefore, he decided to shift his shop to the central bazaar.

Due to a lack of funding, Shakeela has requested a loan from Kiva partner, BRAC Pakistan, to fund the cost of shifting her husband's shop to the central bazaar. With the profit, her husband wants to open a new electronics shop in the future.

Shakeela desires to provide quality education to all her children and she prays for the good health of her family and for the growth of her husband's business. She is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan.
