A loan of $225 helped to open her clothing business at the public market, and to buy a greater variety of clothing to sell.


Anjum's story

Anjum is 37 years old and an independent woman. She has three children, and her husband died six years ago. She has been in business, selling clothing at her house, since her husband's death six years ago. This is the only source of income for her family. Due to large household expenses and Anjum being the sole supporter of her family, she is facing a lot of problems in life.

She has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan. She wants to expand her business by opening a garment shop in the market, because she is not getting enough customers in her house. She would also buy a greater variety of clothing, including shirts and dresses, to attract more customers. This loan could help her to increase her monthly income and savings, for the better future of her children. With the profit amount, she would pay the pending utility bills of her house.

She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for helping her.
