Shagufta is a 35-year-old woman living with her spouse and five children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband owns a butcher shop, where he earns sufficient income for his family. Recently, he spend a huge part of his income to pay utility bills, which affected his purchasing power for new inventory for his butcher shop. He tried to take loans from banks and other organizations but he does not have any property to use as security.

So Shagufta requested a loan of PKR 20,000 from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan because BRAC Pakistan provides the facility to empower poor people without asking about assets. With the help of the loan, Shagufta's husband will purchase products for the butcher shop.

Shagufta wants to provide higher education to her children. She dreams to provide all facilities of life to her children.
She is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan.
