Farzana's story

Farzana is 43 years old. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She is the mother of four children. Her husband's salary, alone, is not enough to meet the household needs. Therefore Farzana is running a small business, to help her husband by generating some income. She purchases new shawls and resells them at profitable prices. She is a very hardworking woman. The variety of shawls that she sells, are liked by everyone.

Currently, the stock of her shawls is almost finished. Therefore, she is interested in purchasing a variety of products, in different colors, for her business. For that purpose she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. The enlarged inventory will help her to increase her net income, and her savings for the future. She will use the profit for the better education of her children. She is feeling very confident and satisfied after taking this loan, because the profit will help her to manage the household expenses and to meet her children's education expenses.
