Shahida's story

Shahida is a 38-year-old lady living with her spouse in the area of Multan, Pakistan. She has three children, two daughters and one son. The family lives in its own brick house that has drinking water, electricity and plumbing.

Her language is Punjabi, which she speaks with her family, and she speaks Urdu culturally and for her business.

Shahida has been running an embroidery business for five years to meet household expenses. Her embroidery business is very famous in the area, and that is the reason it runs well. Due to good relations, her business has increased.

Shahida wants to meet the demand for bridal dresses and wants to buy thread, fancy cloth, sequins and pearls of various colors in advance, to have in stock. She requires some capital to buy the desired items, but does not have sufficient cash on hand.

The challenge Shahida is facing is to have sufficient capital to run the business and to be able to support her family in its present form.

Therefore, Shahida has humbly requested a loan from BRAC Pakistan. Through this loan, she will be able to buy the thread, fancy cloth, sequins and pearls of various colors that she needs.

Shahida and her family will be thankful to Kiva, its lenders and field partner BRAC Pakistan for helping them by funding this loan to improve their living standard.
