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


A loan helped to buy more stock of wheat, rice, flour, pulses, soaps, shampoo, detergents, biscuits, cold drinks and snacks etc for her son's general store.


Samina's story

Samina is 39. She is the mother of four children and lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is pictured here with her son.

Her son has been running a general store in which he sells rice, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, soap, biscuits, cold drinks and snacks etc. He manages his household expenditures from his own store. As well, some relatives like to purchase from his general store.

His general store is very famous in the town, that is the reason his business is running well. Due to good relationships, his sales have increased a lot but he does not have sufficient stock to cope with the demand. Therefore, Samina requested a loan for her son so that he can buy more stock of wheat, rice, flour, pulses, soaps, shampoo, detergents, biscuits, cold drinks and snacks etc for his general store.

Samina thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
