A loan of $550 helped a member to expand her husband's general store.

Shazia's Group's story

Saiqa, a 31-year-old woman, is a mother of 3 sons and 2 daughters, living in one of the poorly developed area of Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her husband has been running a general store since 2009 and wants to expand it by buying more goods, but because of financial constraints he finds this difficult.

For that, Saiqa, as a member of 2 person lending group, has requested a loan from KIVA partner BRAC Pakistan, for the growth of her husband's general store. This will help in increasing their monthly savings and improving their children's future as well. She is hopeful that the loan will result in a positive and productive outcome for them so that they can lead a happy life.
