Akbari's story

Akbari is a 39-year-old lady who lives with her spouse in Multan and has no children. Her husband is a mason. Akbari has been making and selling pickles in her home for 8 years. She makes pickles and, after packing them in jars, her husband supplies them to different shops. She needs a loan in order to buy masala and vegetables to pickle, like green chilis, carrots, etc.

So she has applied for a Kiva loan from BRAC Pakistan. With the help of this loan she will buy inventory for her business. She can earn more income, and this income will help her to fulfill her family’s needs.


This loan is special because:

It provides financial services in some of the poorest parts of Pakistan.
