Farah’s husband has a job in a firm. To increase his monthly income he planned to start a business in the evenings selling fruit. Due to a lack of funds, he is unable to start a small business. Therefore, Farah requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so her husband can buy initial inventory to start his fruit business.

Farah is a responsible mother. She always pays attention to opportunities to reduce expenses and to reasonable resources to get more income. Her aim is to provide better facilties and living standards for her family. Now, she is hopeful that the new business will work out and provide their family with an increase in income.

Farah is very thankful to Kiva, honorable lenders, and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
