Azra's story

Azra lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan, with her husband and three children. Her husband owns a small jewelry shop where he sells artificial jewelry such as rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. He presents his jewelry in a glass display case to attract customers.

Azra is very thankful to Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, because they have provided her with a ray of hope that she can fulfill her dreams.
