Jan's story

Jan is a 39-year-old responsible mother of five children. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, along with her husband and children. Her husband is a government employee and three of her children are currently studying in schools. Her husband’s income is not enough to meet the household and educational expenses of their children, and they are facing many hurdles in life.

Jan has been helping her husband by operating a clothing sales business in her house for the past three years. She has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to expand her business. The main purpose of the loan is to buy a variety of clothes at a cheaper rate and then sell them for a profit.

In the future, Jan looks forward to opening a small boutique in the market. She plans to save some of the money from the profits she earns to pay the educational expenses of her children.

Jan is very bright with great vision, and this loan could help her fulfill her dreams. She is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva for their support.
