Naseem's story

Naseem is a 36-year-old woman living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She has eight children and her husband is working as a carpenter. The monthly income of her husband is insufficient to meet their household expenses due to the large family size, therefore Naseem is helping her husband by doing her own business. She has been successfully running her business of selling ornamental items for 8 years.

Naseem has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to expand her business. She would purchase a large quantity and new variety of bangles, bracelets, necklaces, key chains and other ornamental items and sell them for a profit. This could increase her sales, monthly income and savings and she could support her family in better way. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
