Riffat's story

Riffat is a 49 year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of five children.

Her husband owns a general store in the market which is the only source of income for the family. He sells a variety of products in his store. Presently he is interested in offering more variety to his customers which will help him to increase his net income and savings as well. However, due to the lack of funds he finds it difficult. Therefore, his wife has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan so that she can help her husband to purchase cake, fruit cake, biscuits, bubbles, popcorn, nimko and sell them at the market at a profitable price. With the profit amount her husband wants to grow his business in the future. Riffat is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
