A loan of $475 helped to purchase a variety of products for her husband's general store.


Zarina's story

Zarina is a 54-year-old housewife. She lives with her husband and four children in Punjab, Pakistan.

Since 2007, her husband has had a general store, which is the only source of income for the family. Zarina also helps her husband in his business. He needs additional capital for the growth of his business. For that reason, his wife Zarina has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan.

With the loan money, her husband can buy a variety of products for his general store, to satisfy his clients more professionally as well as to increase his savings for the better future of his children. With the profits expected from this loan, Zarina intends to expand her husband's business so that she can purchase a sewing machine for her personal use.

Zarina and her husband are very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for their family.
