Benish Group's story

Benish is 31 years old. She is a diligent and hardworking woman living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, along with her husband and two daughters. Her husband is a government employee, and both of her children are currently studying in school. Her husband’s monthly income is not enough to meet the household expenses. They are living in a rented house, and Benish desires to have her own house as they have to pay very high rent every month. For two years, Benish has been helping her husband support the family by selling clothes. As a member of a two-person group, she has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to buy new varieties of clothes and expand her business. With the anticipated profit, she wants to pay the educational expenses of her children and save some money for the future. Benish is very hopeful that the loan will be productive for them. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support. NOTE: In the picture, Benish is raising her hand.
