Nighat's Group's story

Nighat is a 26-year-old married woman who is living in Punjab, Pakistan, with her husband, son and daughter.
Since 2010 her husband has been running a vegetable shop in the market, which is the only source of income for their family. Her husband's income is not enough to run the household expenses therefore they are going through a very difficult time. With all this his vegetable stock is almost finished and because of financial constrain he is not able to purchase more vegetables.
To do that Nighat as a member of six person lending group has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan, to help her husband in purchasing a variety of vegetables for his vegetable shop. With the help of this loan amount, her husband will be able to increase his net income and continue his small vegetable business.
Nighat dreams of her children's bright future and prays for her husband's good health. She wants to say that BRAC is working very well in the field of micro-finance, and she is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva for helping her.
