A loan of $325 helped to purchase welding materials for her husband's welding shop.


Amna's story

Mrs. Amna is a 29-year-old woman. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of five children. Her husband is a welder by profession. He owns a small welding shop in the main market, which is the only source of income for the family. However, his monthly net income is insufficient to fulfill the needs of his family. Therefore, he is interested in growing his business. Amna has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Paksitan, which she will use for her husband's business. The loan amount will help her husband to buy welding materials, such as iron rods, welding rods, soldering rods, and iron sheets. This supply of materials will help him to earn more income. Amna will spend the profit amount to meet the household expenses. In their area, the major problem is load shedding (rolling blackouts), which affect the business of her husband. She hopes that this issue will resolve soon. She is thankful to Kiva.
