Shameem Group's story

Shameem is a 53-year-old responsible and hardworking housewife. She is a mother of five children and her husband is currently working as an auto mechanic.

Shameem and her husband have been saving money from many years to purchase a van. Her husband wants to start his own transport business. For that purpose, as a member of a two-person lending group, Shameem has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. They would purchase the van and can start their own business. In this way their monthly income would be increased. This could solve many of their financial problems. Shameem is very much thankful to Kiva
