Bushra is a 48-year-old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is requested a loan for her husband’s fruit-selling business. Her husband owns a fruit shop in the community and participates in the household expenses. He likes to sell seasonal fruit, and right now he wants to buy oranges in large quantity to sell because it's their season and their price is very low.
Therefore, Bushra requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner so her husband can buy the oranges in bulk. She hopes that this loan will prove productive for her and she will soon be able to save a reasonable amount.
