Abida's Group's story

Abida is a 38 year-old married woman. She is the mother of five children. She adores her family and her husband works very hard so that his family can have a good and respectable life. Eight years ago, her husband started his own business selling welding material.

Abida, as a member of a two person lending group, is requesting a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan for her husband. He will use the loan amount to increase his supply of welding products including iron rods, iron sheets, soldering rods, welding rods, etc. so that he can respond quickly to customer needs. He plans to expand his business with the additional income he earns. Abida hopes that the loan will be helpful for her husband's business. She is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
