Nadia is a 34-year-old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She got married 5 years ago but still she has not given birth a baby. Her husband is a contractor and constructs buildings on contract. Recently, he was working on a usual contract but suddenly the bricks were in short supply, and the work had to be stopped. He already invested all his savings in the current contract and does not have the money needed to buy the bricks to finish it.

Nadia has requested a loan of 25,000 Rs. so that her husband will be able to buy bricks and finish the contract. With the profit she and her husband make from finishing the work, Nadia will be able to get better treatment from a specialist doctor so that God may bless her with a baby. Nadia hopes that this loan will bring positive changes in her life and she is very thankful to Kiva and the lenders.
