A loan of $1,950 helped a member to purchase goods for her general store.


Naila's Group's story

Naila is a 50-year-old hard-working and diligent woman. She lives in Punjab, Pakistan with her husband, 3 daughters and 3 sons. Her husband supplies goods in a market and earns a good income, while one of her sons works as a salesman.

Since 1999, Naila has run her own general store. She works very hard and honestly. Currently she is in need of additional capital for the growth of her business. And for that, as a member of a 10-person lending group, she has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase some goods for her general store like soft drinks, shampoo, soap, pulses, rice, etc. With the profit she wants to establish some savings for her children's future. She dreams of owning her own house, as she is currently living in a rented house. She is very much hoping that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for her family. She sends her greetings to BRAC and Kiva users.
