Sumaira's Group's story

Sumaira, age 31, is the leader of this borrower group. She is a very hard-working and decent lady. She is a responsible mother of four children, two daughters and two sons. She adores her family, and her husband works very hard so that his family can have a good and respectable life. Her husband owns a restaurant, which is the only source of income for his family. He offers a variety of delicious and hygienic food in the restaurant. Sumaira is applying for a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan with the goal of improving her husband's business. He will use the loan to buy cooking oil, beef, chicken and pulses (legumes) for making various dishes. With the expected profits from this loan, he intends to expand his business so that he can eventually build a small house for his family. Sumaira hopes that the loan will be helpful to her husband's business. She is thankful to the Kiva lenders and to BRAC Pakistan.
