Rani's story

Rani is a 50-year-old woman. She lives in Punjab, Pakistan, with her husband and six children. Since 1999, her husband has been working as a scrap dealer, which is the only source of income for their family. They belong to a poor family and his income is inadequate to run the household.

Rani has requested a loan from Kiva's partner Brac Pakistan. The loan amount will help her husband to purchase scrap iron, plastic and nylon for reselling at a profitable price. With the help of this loan, her husband will be able to grow his business and increase their income from it.

Rani dreams of the higher education of her children. She hopes that the financial issues of her family will resolve soon and she can start putting aside savings for her children's education. She is grateful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
