Parveen's story

Parveen is a 36-year-old married woman living with her spouse and four children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband is a butcher by profession; he sells chicken from his shop. His daily practice is to buy broilers from the market and sell them in his shop. Recently he spent a huge part of his income to pay utility bills, which discouraged his purchasing power for new inventory for his butcher shop. Therefore, Parveen has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so her husband can buy broilers to sell from his shop. She dreams to provide all the facilities of life to her children.
