Nusrat's story

Nusrat is a 29-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of two children. She belongs to a poor family. They are going through a very difficult time, as the net income of her husband is not enough to sustain the family life.

Her husband owns a general store near his house, which is the only source of income for the family. He sells a variety of products in his store. Presently, he is interested to offer more variety to his customers. However, due to the lack of finances, he finds it difficult.

Therefore his wife, Nusrat, has requested a loan amount of 30,000 PKR from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that she can help her husband to purchase rusk, cake, biscuits, bread, bubbles, and popcorn to sell. This will help him to increase his net income and savings as well.

With the profit amount, Nusrat wants to construct her house. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
