Sidra's story

Sidra is a 41-year-old married woman who lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She does not work; she stays at home and looks after her family members because her children are still very young and her elderly parents need good care. Sidra's husband is very hardworking and loves his family very much. He is involved in his own business in order to have a regular income for the family. He manufactures and sells furniture, such as single beds, chairs, and tables. He started this business many years ago. He has many regular customers and is also taking orders from other cities. This business yields a good income, but his family's needs are increasing day by day and he needs more money to afford household expenses. Sidra wants to buy more raw materials for her husband in order to expand the furniture-making business. This is why she came to BRAC Pakistan to obtain a loan. She hopes that this loan will prove beneficial and productive for her husband's business as well as for the family. Sidra thanks Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan for this honorable support.
