Balqees's story

Balqees is a 48-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of nine children, three sons and six daughters. Her husband owns a vegetable shop in the market that is the only source of income for the family. He sells a variety of fresh vegetables in his shop.

Currently, he is interested to offer more variety to his customers, which will help him to increase his net income and savings as well. However, due to the lack of funding, he finds it difficult. Therefore his wife, Balqees, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan so that she can help her husband to purchase vegetables from the field and sell them in the market at a profitable price.

With the profit, her husband wants to grow his business in the future. Balqees is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakiatan.
