Zubaida is 58 years old and a mother of six children. She is a responsible housewife. She is a poor lady, and her family is facing financial problems due to lack of income. Her husband is a welder by profession. Presently, he is interested in purchasing iron rods, iron sheets, welding rods, soldering rods, etc., to sell, but due to the lack of income, he finds it difficult to purchase. Therefore, Zubaida has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, for her husband to purchase these items. This will help him to increase his net income and savings in the future. Zubaida is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
