A loan of $525 helped a member to purchase new television sets for her husband's television business.

Rizwana Group's story

Rizwana is a 60-year-old responsible housewife. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, along with her husband and four children. Her husband has been running a television sales business for seven years.

Rizwana, as a member of a two-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband can expand his business. He would buy new models of television sets, as the old ones have no demand now. His sales would be increased with the newer models available in his shop, which will attract more customers. With the profit amount, Rizwana would pay the educational expenses of her children. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support.
