Shamim's story

Shamim is a 40-year-old hardworking and independent woman who lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She has no children and is currently living with her husband in a rented house. Her husband is jobless, and she is the only person in the family earning money. She works in a dental clinic, but she wants to start her own pharmacy. Shamim has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to open a new medical store and to purchase a variety of medicines for that store. She could start her own business and this loan could fulfill her dreams. She hopes and prays that her husband gets a job soon. She is very thankful to Kiva.
