A loan of $425 helped to buy damaged iron, plastic, and nylon for reselling.


Musarrat's story

Musarrat is a 40-year-old woman living in Pakistan with her husband and five children. Her husband owns a scrap shop which is the only source of income for his family. Her husband's income is not sufficient to cover household expenditures. Presently he wants to purchase damaged iron, plastic, and nylon for reselling at a profitable price.

For that reason, Musarrat has requested a loan from KIVA's partner BRAC Pakistan to help her husband to purchase the needed things, so that he can work more professionally and efficiently and can more easily grow his business. Musarrat has dreams for her children's better future and her husband's good health. She wants to live a good and simple life with her family. Salam and many thanks from her to all Kiva lenders and BRAC and Kiva staff.
