Kosar is a 58-year-old woman residing in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She is the mother of eight children. Her husband is an iron box maker by profession, and one of her sons is running his own business of furniture polishing. Both of them are responsible to feed the entire family and to manage the household.

Kosar's husband needs to buy different types of manufacturing merchandise for his business, but due to insufficient financial means he is not in a position to buy this merchandise. Therefore, Kosar has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner BRAC Pakistan. With the help of this loan her husband can easily purchase the relevant manufacturing goods to fulfill his business needs. This will also help him to increase sales and profit margins.

For this financial assistance, Kosar is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
