Waheeda's story

Waheeda is a 47-year-old housewife. She lives with her husband, three daughters and two sons in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Since 2003, her husband has had a general store, and he works very hard to meet his family's needs. He needs additional capital for the growth of his business. For that reason, his wife Waheeda has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. With the loan money, her husband can buy a variety of goods for his general store like flour, sugar, pulses, and detergent to satisfy his clients more professionally as well as to increase his net income. Waheeda and her husband are very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for their family.
