Shahnaz's story

Shahnaz is a hardworking and kind woman. She is a responsible housewife and the mother of 3 children. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She belongs to a very poor family and sustains her family life by facing many hurdles.

Her husband is a cobbler by profession and his income is inadequate for their household needs. Shahnaz has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase leather, soles and Rexine (artificial leather) for her husband's shop so that he can increase his income.

Shahnaz hopes that her children can live a better life in the future. She is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for the loan.
