Hanifa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to increase her crockery business.

Hanifa's story

Hanifa is a 39-year-old woman, living in the area of Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She owns a small crockery store, in which she sells utensils and crockery items such as plates, dishes, cups, jars, glass, jugs, mugs, cauldron and buckets.

Hanifa is a mother of four children and is the single person responsible for feeding them. She has only one source of income and she has to afford the expenses of utility bills and household expenses alone. The condition of her house is not up to the mark according to her living standard. Hanifa wants buy more inventories to sell because most of her female customers purchase utensils in large quantity for making a dowry. For this purpose, more inventories are required to cope with the sudden increase in the demand.

Hanifa requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner’s BRAC Pakistan, so she can buy utensils and crockery items to generate more income.

Hanifa is very thankful to Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan because they showed a beam of hope to fulfill her desires.
