A loan of $325 helped to purchase a variety of fruits from the field.


Mariam's story

Mariam is a 35-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of six children.

She belongs to a very poor family. Her husband owns a fruit shop in the market, which is the only source of income for the family. He sells apples, bananas and oranges in his shop.

Currently, he is interested in offering more variety to his customers, which will help him to increase his net income and savings as well. However, due to the lack of funds, he finds it difficult. Therefore, his wife, Mariam, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan so that she can help her husband to purchase a variety of fruits from the field and sell them in the market at a profitable price.

With the profits expected from this loan, he intends to purchase a refrigerator for preserving food. Mariam is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakiatan.
