Zarmeen's story

Zarmeen is a 32-year-old hardworking and diligent woman. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband, two daughters and one son. All the three children are studying in schools.

Her husband is a laborer and his income is insufficient to pay the school fees of the children and meet the household expenses. Zarmeen is helping her husband by selling milk, yogurt, and butter from her home to other people in the suburbs.

She has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. The main purpose of loan is that she would buy milk and other dairy products from the village in large quantity and then sell it in the city for a profit. With the profit amount, she would pay the school fee of her children and save some money for the future.

She dreams of having her own house. She wants to live a happy peaceful life with her family and this loan can fulfill her dreams. She is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva for their support.
