A loan of $325 helped to purchase a wood cutting machine and other tools.

Parveen's story

Parveen is a 53-year-old woman who lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband and five children. For 25 years, her husband has been running a wood shop, which is the only source of income for their family. He is an excellent carpenter and he is skilled at making good quality furniture.

Parveen has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to help her husband in his business. Her husband will purchase a wood cutting machine and some tools like hammers, nails, wooden sheets, glue, etc. 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. Parveen prays for her children's bright future and her husband's good health.
