Shahida is a 38-year-old married woman living with her family in Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband owns a bakery in their hometown where he sells all kinds of cakes, rusks, milk packs, biscuits, and juices. He purchases his inventories in a large quantity from a nearby bakery and sells it from his bakery. Now he wants to offer additional different types of sweets to his customers but does not have sufficient income to buy these additional sweets.

Therefore, Shahida has requested a loan so that her husband can buy his desired sweets to sell. He wants to prepare these sweets at home in the future, so that he can earn the maximum income. He will save some of the profit and hopes in the future he will prepare all the sweets by himself.

Shahida thanks Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
