Mariyam's story

Mariyam is a 35 year-old married woman. She lives in the rural area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of five children. She belongs to a middle class family. Her husband is the only earning person in the family. He is a tailor by profession which is the only source of income for his family. His monthly income is inadequate to meet the household needs. Presently, he needs to purchase a machine. However, due to the lack of funds he finds it difficult.

Therefore, Mariyam has requested for a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase the needful things for her husband's business. She hopes that the loan will be helpful for her husband. She wants to provide a quality education to her children. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
