Yasmeen's story

Yasmeen is a 39-year-old housewife. She lives with her husband and four children in Punjab, Pakistan. Since 2000, her husband has been running a general store, which is the only source of income for the family. Yasmeen also helps her husband in his business; he needs additional capital for the growth of his business. For that she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. With the loan money, her husband can buy a variety of products, like flour, sugar, eggs, and rice for his general store. This will help him to satisfy his clients more professionally, as well as increase his savings for the better future of his children. With the profits expected from this loan, Yasmeen intends to expand her husband's business so that she can purchase a sewing machine for her personal use. Yasmeen and her husband are very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for their family.
