Anayat's story

Anayat is a 57-year-old widow who is pictured with her son, who earns a very low income. He provides shuttering services for houses under construction; he builds temporary shelters with the help of bamboo and wooden planks so it can support concrete mixture for two weeks. His work is contract-based and most of the time he is unable to get any contracts. Recently her son has gotten a huge contract, but he does not have enough shuttering material to provide proper services. Anayat has requested a loan so that her son can buy more shuttering materials such as wooden planks, bamboos, and nails to provide his best services. Anayat is very thankful to the Kiva and BRAC Pakistan, she is hopeful that the Kiva lenders will support her and her son.
