Nighat is a 48-year-old married woman living with her spouse and four children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband is a butcher by trade; he sells chickens in his shop. His daily practice is to buy broilers from the market and sell them in his shop. Recently he spent a huge part of his income to pay utility bills which weakened his purchasing power for new inventory of his butcher shop.

Therefore, Nighat requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so he can buy broilers to sell in his shop. Her dream is to provide all facilities of life to her children.
