Rasheeda's story

Rasheeda is a 42-year-old woman who is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband, three sons and one daughter. Her husband is a heart patient, and she always worries about his health. Her husband is a carpenter, and he has been running a wood shop for 20 years, which is the only source of income for their family. All of her sons are very hardworking and help their father in his business a lot. Rasheeda has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. Rasheeda will use her portion to help her husband in purchasing a wood machine and some wood material for his shop. As they have no other source of income, with the help of this loan, her husband will be able to continue his business, and with the net profit he will open a new shop for his son.
