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

A loan helped to buy new paint brushes, rollers and kerosene for her husband's whitewash services.

Abida's story

Abida is a 48-year-old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of a son and pictured with her husband at her home.

He provides whitewash and oil paint services to his customers in the community. Sometimes he has to go out of the city also.

He has gotten a new contract for whitewash and oil paint for a newly constructed house but he does not have paint brushes or rollers for providing the services.

Abida has requested a loan so that her husband can buy new paint brushes, rollers, kerosene oil etc.

His savings is very poor and that is why he is unable to buy new tools for providing whitewash services. She wants to change the condition of her family and hopes that this loan will prove beneficial for her husband.

She is very thankful for Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
