Josphen's story

Josphen is a 50 years old responsible mother of five children. She lives in Rawalpindi Pakistan. Her husband is a government employee and three of her children are currently in school. Her husband’s income is not enough to meet the household and educational expenses of their children and they are facing many hurdles in life. Josphen has been helping her husband by working at her cloth business for the last three years. She has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to expand her business. The main purpose of the loan is to buy new varieties of cloth at a cheaper rate and then sell it for a profit. In the future she is looking forward to opening a small boutique in the market. With the profit she will pay the educational expenses of her children and save some money. She has a bright vision and this loan will help her to fulfill her dreams. She is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva for their support.
