Lakhman's Group's story

Lakhman is a hardworking 48-year-old housewife. She lives with her husband, daughter, and 2 sons in Punjab, Pakistan. One of her sons is an auto mechanic while the other one is jobless and searching for a job. Since 2008, her husband has been running his own general store. He works very hard to meet his family's needs. He needs additional capital for the growth of his business so that he can increase his net income.

To help with that, Lakhman, as a member of 10-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. This loan amount will help her husband to purchase a variety of products like soap, shampoo, soft drinks, crockery, etc. for the general store. Stocking these goods will help satisfy the needs of his clients more professionally and increase his savings for his children's future. Lakhman and her husband are very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for their family. She dreams of better and successful future for her children.
