A loan of $1,550 helped a member to purchase a variety of medicines for her new drug store.

Gul's Group's story

Gul is a 52-year-old hard working and independent woman who lives in Punjab, Pakistan. She has no children and is currently living with her husband in a rented house. Her husband is jobless and she is the only earning person in the family. She works in a dental clinic but she wants to start her own pharmacy.

Gul, as a member of a 7-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to open a new medical store and to purchase a variety of medicines for that store. She hopes and prays that her husband gets a job soon. She is very thankful to Kiva.

Note: In the picture, Gul is holding a pass book in her hand. While Sajida is too conservative to show her face for the Kiva picture. That is why, in the above picture, she is wearing a hijab to cover her face.

In this group: Gul , Saleem, Sajida, Shakeela, Nazia, Nazish , Rashida
