A loan of $500 helped to buy thin rods of iron and coils for making chain.


Robina's story

Robina is a 44-year-old married woman who lives in the vicinity of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband makes iron chain by hand in his workshop. The chain is made on a hearth by hammering cut lengths of red-hot wrought iron rod into oval links, one link passing through the next to form a cable. A few days ago the iron rod's coil was stolen from his workshop, and now he is unable to make any chain to sell in order to earn income.

Robina has requested a loan of PKR 50,000 from Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband can buy a new iron rod coil to start his business again.

Robina is the mother of 8 children, and it is very difficult to feed all of them each day. Her dream is to provide all of the necessities for each of her children.

Robina is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan for this honorable favor.
