Misbah belongs to a poor family, living with her spouse and six children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her son is a blacksmith; he manufactures iron accessories for doors and windows to be used in houses. He has been providing door to door services to weld broken accessories.

A few days ago his welding plant went out of order due to overheating and it needs to be replaced with a new one. He wants to buy a new welding plant but he does not have money due to a lot of household expenses.

Therefore, Misbah has requested a loan from BRAC who is an active field partner of Kiva, so that her son will be able to buy a welding plant and additional iron accessories for manufacturing.

Misbah thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
