Nusrat's story

Nusrat is a 45-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of eight-children. Her husband owns a welding shop in the market which is the only source of income for the family.

Therefore, his wife Nusrat has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan, so that she can help her husband to purchase iron sheets for making and welding shelves, boxes and cupboards. She assures to pay back the loan installments on time.

Nusrat is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakiatan.
