Parveen's story

Parveen is a 53-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of four children. Her husband owns a fruit shop in the market, which is the only source of income for the family. He sells apples, bananas, oranges, melons, and watermelons in his shop. 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 expenses, he finds it difficult.

Therefore, his wife, Parveen, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan so that she can help her husband to purchase a variety of fruits from the field and sell them in the market at profitable prices. With the profit amounts, her husband wants to grow his business in the future. Parveen is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
