Shameem Akthar's story

Shameem Akhtar is a 51-year-old woman. She lives in a small village of Sialkot, Pakistan with her family. She has been successfully running a small grocery store at the corner of her house. She has two years of experience in this field.

She wants to grow her business by adding some more commonly used products like pulses, vegetable ghee, snacks, etc. She, however, finds it difficult to act upon due to the limited financial resources of her family. Therefore, she has asked for credit from JWS Pakistan, field partner of Kiva. She is expecting a boost in her earnings through this initiative.

Shameem Akhtar and her family are very appreciative to Kiva and JWS Pakistan.
