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

A loan helped to buy goods, including oil, ghee, sugar, pulses and bakery items, for her store.

Qafia's story

Qafia is a 37-year-old woman. She lives with her children and husband in Gujranwala, Pakistan. Her growing family has been faced with the challenges of paying expenses with very little income from her.

The idea of entrepreneurship emerged three years ago when she took initiative to open a small general store to provide basic food items at the community level. The idea worked well but she has been unable to add some necessary items to her store, including oil, ghee, sugar, pulses and bakery items, due to a lack of funds. To solve this problem, she has requested a loan from JWS Pakistan. This loan will help her purchase inventory for the general store and increase her income in a sustainable manner.

She is thankful to Kiva & JWS Pakistan.
