Razia is a 50-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is passing her life with her husband and three children. Her husband is a very hard working and honest person. He owns a small restaurant in which he offers types of delicious foods. He hired a worker for his restaurant and he has to pay a salary to that worker. He has been running his restaurant for many years and this is the reason that most of the chairs, utensils and crockery have broken. So Razia's husband wants to buy furniture for the restaurant and crockery but his major income is spent on household expenses. Therefore, Razia requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband can buy furniture and crockery for the restaurant. She is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
