Rafia's story

Rafia is an enterprising woman with many dreams to fulfill. She loves her family and claims they are her greatest strength for getting up each morning and working hard to generate an income. She lives with her husband, 3 daughters and 3 sons in Punjab, Pakistan.

She owns a general store, and she works very hard to meet her family's needs. She needs additional capital for the growth of her business. She has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan.

With the loan money, she will purchase a variety of goods including flour, rice, pulses (beans), soaps, soft drinks, tea packs, etc. for the general store, in order to satisfy her clients more professionally as well as to increase her savings for the better future of her children.

Rafia and her husband are very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for her business.
