Rozina's story

Rozina is a 43-year-old lady living with her two sons, a daughter and spouse in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

She owns a general store at home; she has allotted a portion of her house for her general store. One of her drawing rooms opens through the front side into the street; she is using that room for the general store. She offers many items such as rice, flour, pulses, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, soap and biscuits.

She has been running this business for many years and this is the major source of income for her family because her husband's earning is very poor. Now she wants to grow her business with the increments in the needs of her family. So she decided to grow her business and contacted Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan.

She will buy rice, flour, pulses, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, soap and biscuits; she hopes that her general store will work better than before.

She praises the cooperation and thanks Kiva and its field Partner BRAC Pakistan.
