Razia is 42 years old and lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her family. She is the mother of five children. She owns a small embroidery business in her house. Her embroidery cloths are liked by everyone. Presently her stock of embroidery material is almost depleted, therefore she wants to purchase a variety of embroidery materials including colorful threads, beads, stones, needles and clothes. For that purpose Razia has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. She is hopeful that the loan will be productive for her business. With the profit, she wants to construct her own house. She hopes that she will earn sufficient profit so that she could easily pay back the loan amount as well as construct her house. She is feeling very happy after taking the loan because this will help her to fulfill her needs.
