Nasreen's Group's story

Nasreen is a 57-year-old housewife. She lives with her husband, five daughters and two sons in Punjab, Pakistan. Her husband is a hawker and her elder son is working as a laborer. Since 2007, Nasreen has been running a general store. She works very hard to meet her family's needs. She needs additional capital for the growth of her business.

Nasreen is a member of 5-person lending group, and she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. With the loan money, she will buy a variety of goods like sugar, water bottles, soft drinks, etc. for the general store. This will help her satisfy her clients more professionally as well as to increase her savings for a better future for her children.

Nasreen is very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for the family.
