Raeesa is a very hardworking housewife. She lives with her husband, daughter, and son in Punjab, Pakistan.

Since 2007, her husband has had been running his own general store, and he works very hard to meet his family needs. He needs additional capital for the growth of his business. His wife Raeesa is a member of seven-person lending group, and she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan.

With the loan money, her husband can purchase a variety of goods for his general store like sugar, flour, rice, biscuits, etc., to satisfy his clients more professionally, as well as to increase his savings for the better future of his children.
