Yasmeen is the age of 28; she is mother of three children and living in Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband has been running a general store for many years near his house and the business is operating very well. Earlier he was selling bakery items in large quantity but according to the customer’s demand he wants to offer rice, sugar, flour etc. He does not want to refuse any product and disappoint any of his respected customers. He wants to offer all those products which are necessary and consumable in daily routine. In this way, he will successfully win the trust of his customers and increase his income as well. Therefore, Yasmeen requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband could buy the sacks of rice, sugar and flour for general store. She is very glad after taking this loan and hopeful that her husband will successfully fulfill each request for any item and prevent the disappointment of his customers. Yasmeen is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
