A loan of $850 helped a member to buy fish for fish farming.


Maryam's Group's story

Maryam is a 43-year-old married woman, living with her family in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband owns a fish farm on partnership. In Pakistan, the rainy season has started, and due to monsoons the boundary wall of the fish farm cracked. His farm filled with rainwater and began to flow out from the fish farm. Many fish were also carried away with the water. Now he wants more fish for his fish farm, but he does not have enough money to buy fish.

For this purpose, Maryam contacted Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband would be able to buy more fish for his fish farm. Maryam hopes that this loan will prove beneficial for her family and effect positive changes upon their lives. Her dream is to provide better facilities and higher qualifications to her children. She is very thankful to Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan.
