Kousar lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of six children. Her husband owns a garment shop, which is the only source of income for the family. Her husband wants to purchase a variety of ready-made dresses for his business so that he can increase his income. Due to a lack of finances, he finds this difficult. Therefore Kousar has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase ready-made garments such as jeans, shirts, pants, belts, etc. for her husband's shop. She is hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for the business. With the profits expected from this loan, Kousar intends to buy a new refrigerator for food preservation. She is so thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
