Mehnaz is a 25-year-old woman. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of two children. Her husband owns a card printing shop which is the only source of income for his family. Currently they are facing a serious load shedding problem (regular power outages) in the area. Because of that Mehnaz's husband is unable to fulfill the demands of customers on time and generate a good amount of income. He wants to purchase a generator for his business so that he can work easily.

For that purpose his wife Mehnaz has requested for a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to help her husband to cover the cost of purchasing a generator. This will help him to fulfill the demands of customers on time and to continue his work.
