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

A loan helped to buy crushed plastic raw material for manufacturing plastic accessories.

Parveen's story

Parveen is 40 and the mother of eight children. Her husband owns a shop in which he has a few compression molding machines. He takes orders for manufacturing plastic accessories. He hires laborers for molding machines on daily wages. For the manufacturing of different plastic accessories he needs a different category and quality of raw material. This time he has taken a larger contract than earlier but does not have enough cash on hand to buy an additional molding machine and the crushed plastic raw material to continue his manufacturing.

Therefore, Parveen has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband would be able to buy crushed plastic raw material for his molding machine.

She has to look after a huge family. She has to take care of each of her kids, their school fees, their diet and their health. For these purposes she has need of a huge income and her husband is the only person who is responsible to bear the household expenses.

She is very happy after taking this loan and thanks Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan
