A loan of $450 helped to buy welding tools.


Shabana's story

Shabana is a 33-year-old married woman who lives near Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of three school-going children. Shabana's family is poor and their living standard is inadequate.

Her husband owns a welding shop and it provides his only source of income. Her husband has to work very hard to feed his family. Recently, the welding plant was shut down because of broken machinery and her husband has been unable to work and earn money.

Shabana humbly requests a loan of RS 45,000 from BRAC Pakistan. This will allow her husband to buy new welding tools and reopen his business. Shabana wants to establish a decent standard of living for her family. She will save some of the profit to meet such expenses in the future.

Shabana is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
