Sameera lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of four children.

Sameera's husband sells soaps and detergents which is the only source of income for the family. Her husband wants to purchase soap and detergents in larger quantities. However due to the lack of funds, he finds it difficult. Therefore, Sameera has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase soap and detergents for her husband's shop.

She is hopeful that the loan will be productive for the business. With the profits expected from this loan, her husband intends to expand his business so that he can eventually construct a small house for his family.

Sameera is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
