A loan of $1,625 helped a member to renovate her husband's hotel.

Shabana Group's story

Shabana is a 36-year-old woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, along with her husband and seven children. Her husband has been running a small hotel in the local market. Shabana, as a member of four-person group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. Her husband wants to renovate his hotel and also would do some required repair work in the hotel. He would purchase new furniture, such as chairs and tables, as well as curtains and a variety of carpets. This would attract more customers, and his sales would be increased. Shabana would spend the profit on the education of her children. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan. NOTE: In the picture Shabana is raising her hand
