A loan of $1,750 helped a member to purchase some crockery and chairs for the fast food business.


Najma's Group's story

Najma is a 42-year-old hardworking woman. She is living in Punjab, Pakistan, with her husband, two sons and daughter. All of her children are studying in school.

She and her husband have owned a fast food business for five years, which is the only source of income for their family. Now for the further growth of their business, Najma, as a member of an eight-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase some crockery and chairs for her fast food business.

As their family expenditures are much higher as compared to their monthly income and savings, she wants to open a new shop for her husband with the profit amount. As a result, they can increase their monthly income as well as savings. Her dreams are for the higher education of her children. And she is very much thankful to Kiva for such a great help and kindness.

In this group: Najma, Nasra, Shagufta, Naheed, Haseena, Khursheed, Noor, Mehnaz
