Shazia Group's story

Shazia is a 47-year-old woman living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her spouse and five children. Since 2009, her husband has been running a small vegetable shop. This is the only source of income for their family. Due to an increase in the demand from the customers, Shazia has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. She is the member of a 3 person group and will use the loan for the expansion of her husband's shop. With the loan investment, her husband will buy a variety of fresh vegetables that will allow him to offer more varieties to his clients and increase his sales and income. He would also build one more room to add some more space to his shop. Her husband is a very hardworking and honest man and is confident about his family’s bright future.
