Walayat's Group's story

Walayat is 46 years old and a married woman. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of six children. Her husband is the only earning person in the family. He owns a spice shop which is the only source of income for the family. His monthly income is inadequate to meet the household needs.

Presently, he is in need of purchasing spices for his shop that include chili, ginger, cinnamon, parsley, thyme, cumin, rosemary, saffron, turmeric, and crushed red pepper flakes. However, due to the lack of funds, he finds it difficult. Therefore, Walayat as a member of a 3-person lending group has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase the needful things for her husband's shop.

Her husband's work depends upon electricity because he has to grind the spices for sale and there is a huge loadshedding issue (regular power outages) in the area. Walayat prays that this issue will soon resolve so that her husband can continue his work efficiently. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
