A loan helped to buy welding plant and iron rods for her husband's manufacturing business.

Saima's story

Saima is a twenty-six-year-old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of a son and is pictured with her husband. He is a welder by trade and provides welding services in his community; he manufactures iron accessories, doors, and windows for houses. He has also been providing door-to-door services to weld broken accessories.

A few days ago, his welding plant overheated and is out of order and needs to be replaced with a new one. He wants to buy a new welding plant but he does not have cash in hand due to high household expenses.

Therefore, Saima has requested a loan from BRAC, an active Kiva field partner, so that her husband can buy a welding plant and iron rods and can continue his manufacturing business.

Saima thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
