Abida is a 35-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of two children. Her husband owns a fruit shop in the market which is the only source of income for the family. He sells apples, bananas, and oranges in his shop. Presently he is interested to offer more variety to his customers which will help him to increase his net income and savings as well. However, due to the lack of funds, he finds it difficult. Therefore his wife Abida has requested a loan amount of 20,000 PKR from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan, so that she can help her husband to purchase a variety of fruit from the field and sell the fruit in the market at a profitable price. With the profit amount her husband wants to grow his business in the future. Abida is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakiatan.
