A loan of $2,300 helped a member to purchase products for her husband's general store.


Robina's Group's story

Robina is a 36-year-old housewife. She lives with her husband and two sons in Punjab, Pakistan. Both of her sons are studying in a private school. Since 2007, her husband has had been running a general store and he works very hard to meet his family's needs. He needs additional capital for the growth of his business. His wife Robina is a member of an eight-person lending group and she has requested a loan from KIVA's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase items like crockery, plastic covers, cosmetics and food for her husband's general store. With the profit, her husband will meet household expenses, pay the children's school fees and Kiva's loan installments. Robina and her husband are very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for their family. She is very thankful for Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
