A loan of $275 helped to purchase paint and paint brushes to sell.


Riffat's story

Ms. Riffat is 37-year-old woman. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan with her family. From the past 19 years her husband has been running a paint shop in the market. He is the only income-earner in the family and this shop is the only source of income for his family. His monthly net income is inadequate to meet the household needs so he is planning to grow his business by purchasing more products for the shop. This will help him to increase his monthly net income and savings. However, due to the lack of finance he finds it difficult.

Ms. Riffat wants to help her husband to cover the cost of purchasing paint in different colours and a variety of paint brushes. Therefore she has requested a loan amount of 25,000 PKR from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. She is hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for her husband's business. She is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
