Kiran, age 21, is a homemaker living with her husband and their two children in Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband owns a rubber-selling shop in the area, and it is the only source of income for the family.

At present, Kiran's husband would like to purchase a molding machine for making rubber to offer for sale. He does not have sufficient capital at this time to make this investment, so Kiran has decided to request a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan in order to help her husband purchase the necessary machine.

Kiran is hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for her husband's shop and for the family. She is very thankful to Kiva lenders and to BRAC Pakistan.
