A loan helped to buy stock of vegetables, fruits and grocery items for her shop.

Shumaila's story

Shumaila is a 41-year-old woman who lives with her husband in Sialkot, Pakistan. Her growing family has been facing the challenge of meeting expenses with very little income of her husband.

The idea of entrepreneurship emerged four years ago, when she took initiative to open a small vegetable shop at home. Her husband purchases vegetables, while she sells them at the shop to the local community.

She now wants to add fruits and basic grocery items but lacks money to do so.

She therefore has requested a loan from JWS Pakistan. This loan shall help her in purchasing fruits and grocery items for the shop and raise her income.

She is grateful to Kiva and JWS Pakistan.
