A loan of $1,750 helped a member to purchase a wood machine and some wood material for her husband's wood shop.


Najma's Group's story

Najma is a 42-year-old woman who is living in Punjab, Pakistan, with her husband, six sons and two daughters. Her husband is a heart patient and she always worries about his health.

For 16 years her husband has run a wood shop, which is the only source of income for their family. All of her sons are very hardworking and help their father in his business a lot.

As a member of an eight-person lending group that has requested a loan from Kiva partner Brac Pakistan, Najma will use her portion to help her husband in purchasing a wood machine and some wood material for his shop. As they have no other source of income, with the help of this loan, her husband will be able to continue his business, and with the net profit he will open a new shop for his son.

Najma dreams for her children's bright future and prays for her husband's good health. She wants to say that Brac is working very well in the field of micro finance, and she is very thankful to Brac and Kiva for helping her.

In this group: Najma, Nasreen, Naseem , Zaitoon, Aksar, Azra , Shahida, Safia
