Shagufta is a 34-year-old woman. She is a nurse by profession, while her husband owns an electrical goods shop in the market. They live in a poor community where the sanitation problem is at its peak.

Shagufta's husband is interested in purchasing a variety of electrical goods for the shop. Therefore, she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to purchase electrical items such as cables, bulbs, wires, switches, holders, etc. to sell. This will help him to increase his net income and savings.

With the help of the profit amount, Shagufta wants to purchase a house in a new area where they can sustain their life in a neat and clean environment. Shagufta is grateful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
