Shamim Akhtar's story

Shamim Akhtar is a woman who is 42 years of age. She lives with her three children and husband in Sialkot, Pakistan. Her growing family has been facing challenges meeting expenses with her husband's small income.

The idea of entrepreneurship emerged for Shamim Akhtar last year when she took the initiative to open a small general store which provides basic items such as food to her community. The idea worked well, but she has been unable to add some necessary items to her store, including oil, ghee, sugar, pulses, and bakery items due to insufficient funds.

To solve this problem, Shamim Akhtar has requested a loan from JWS Pakistan. This loan will help her purchase inventory for her general store and increase her income in a sustainable manner. She is thankful to Kiva & JWS Pakistan.
