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

A loan helped to buy wooden planks and bamboo for her brother's shuttering services.

Ruqaya's story

Ruqaya is a 37-year-old married woman, who is living along with her spouse and six children in Lahore, Pakistan. She is standing with her brother in the picture above.

Her brother provides shuttering services for houses under construction. He builds temporary shelters with the help of bamboo and wooden planks to support the concrete mixture for two weeks. Most of his work depends upon the contract and most of the time he is unable to get any contract for shuttering services.

Therefore, Ruqaya has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her brother can be empowered to buy shuttering material such as wooden planks and bamboo.

Ruqaya thanks Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan for their honorable support.
