Shamim's Group's story

Shamim is 46 years old and a vigorous married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She belongs to a poor family, and her family is passing their lives in miserable condition due to their lack of sources of income.

Her husband does work selling cloth. He purchases cloth from other cities at cheap rates and sells it to established markets of Lahore city. Her husband has been doing the same practice for eight years. Now, with the growth of his family, he wants to grow his business also.

Shamim requested a loan from Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband could buy a variety of cloth in large quantities, and through the profit she may change the present condition of her family.

She wants to see a change in the condition of her family, the education of her children, and the business of her husband. She seems happy after taking this loan and thankful to BRAC Pakistan.
