A loan of $600 helped a member to buy iron rods, iron sheet, soldering rods, and welding rods for her husband's welding business.


Farzana's Group's story

Farzana is a 42-year-old married woman who lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of six children and equally responsible for all of them. She belongs to the category of the ultra-poor, which is why she cannot afford the educational expenses of all of her children. One of her sons helps his father in his business. Her husband owns a blacksmith shop. He provides welding services as well as door-to-door services to his customers. Due to an increase in the prices of iron, he is unable to buy sufficient welding materials, such as iron rods, iron sheet, soldering rods and welding rods, to carry on his business. To fulfill customer demand and to run his enterprise, he needs capital to buy welding materials. Farzana has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan for her husband to buy materials to carry on his business. She is very glad and thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
