A loan of $550 helped to purchase electronic parts such as diodes, cathodes, wires and panels for her husband's shop.


Parveen's story

Parveen is the wife of a hard working electrician. She lives with her family in Lahore, Pakistan, and is the mother of five children, all of whom are at school. The family is poor and Parveen's husband is the only income earner, with a monthly income that is insufficient to meet their household expenses. Parveen's husband wants to purchase electronic parts such as diodes, cathodes, wires and panels for his work. Thus, she has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. The loan will not only help him to continue his work but will also increase his net income and savings as well. Parveen hopes that the loan will be very helpful for her husband's business, enabling him to work more professionally and efficiently. She is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
