Salma's story

Salma is a 50-year-old diligent and hardworking woman living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, along with her husband and three daughters. Her husband is a government employee, and all of her children are currently studying in schools. Her husband’s monthly income is not enough to meet the household expenses. They are living in a rented house, and she desires to have her own house as they have to pay very high house rent every month.

Salma has been helping her husband by selling cloth for three years. She has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan, to buy new varieties of cloth and expand her business. With the profit amount, she wants to pay the educational expenses of her children and save some money for the future.

Salma is very hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for them. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their support.
