A loan of $525 helped a member to buy new stock for the hardware shop.


Nosheen Group's story

Nosheen is a 36 year-old housewife living in Rawalpindi with her husband and three children. Since 2005, her husband has been running a hardware shop. He has been selling the tools for plumbers, electricians, laborers and carpenters. Nosheen has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can buy new tools for his shop. The old tools are obsolete and there is no demand for them now. After getting the loan, she will invest the money in her husband's business and he can buy new tools like drill machines, hammers, PVC pipes, joints, wiring, etc. In this way, he can expand his business, and their monthly income can be increased. With the profit amount, Nosheen intends to pay her household expenses. She is looking forward for the bright future of her children. She is very thankful to KIVA and BRAC Pakistan for their support.
