Rabia's Group's story

Rabia is a responsible 33-year-old housewife. She lives with her husband and two sons in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her husband is a salesman and works very hard to meet his family's needs. Both of her sons are students. Rabia dreams of having her own house where she can live happily with her husband and children, as currently she is living in her brother-in-law's house with her family.

Since 2009, Rabia has owned a small garment business at home to contribute to her family's income. Her garment business is going well. As the winter season has started, she is interested in purchasing some warm products like sweaters, coats, gloves, caps, etc. so that she can sell a variety of warm clothes to her customers. However, due to the lack of capital, she is unable to purchase warm clothes.

Rabia, as a member of a 7-person lending group, has therefore requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. With the help of this loan, she can increase her profit as well as her monthly savings so she can provide a better future of her children.

Rabia and her husband are very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for their family.
