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

A loan helped to buy raw materials such as paper and gum to make envelopes.

Tahira's story

Tahira is a 35-year-old woman living with her spouse. She is a mother of six children. She lives in the populated area of Multan, Pakistan. She has a business manufacturing paper envelopes at her home. She has been involved in this work for ten years. She is worried about her business. She makes the paper envelopes and then supplies them to different stores.

She wants to purchase raw materials like paper, gum, etc. for her business, but she lacks sufficient funds. To fulfill this need, Tahira has requested a loan of PKR 20,000 through Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan. With this loan, she can purchase raw materials to continue her business. In the picture she is making paper envelopes.

She is thankful to Kiva, its lenders, and BRAC Pakistan.
