Shazia's story

Shazia is a 29-year-old energetic woman living in a remote area of Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She has one child and her husband is working as a carpenter. The monthly income of her husband is insufficient to meet the household expenses. Therefore Shazia is helping her husband by doing her own business.

She has been successfully running her business of selling ornamental items for eight years.

Shazia has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to expand her business. She would purchase a large quantity and new variety of bangles, bracelets, necklaces, key chains and other ornamental items and sell them at a profit. This could increase her sales, her monthly income and her savings and she could support her family in a better way. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
