A loan of $750 helped a member to buy shuttering material for her husband's business.


Shazia's Group's story

Shazia is a 35-year old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of five children.

Her husband provides shuttering services to his customers. He provides shuttering material such as bamboos for pillars, iron sheets, wooden boards etc, for using in the construction of buildings. In his last contract, most of the bamboo and wooden boards have broken, which is creating trouble for providing shuttering services.

Shazia is worried about her husband's business because it is the single source of income for her family, and her whole family fully depends upon her husband.

Therefore, Shazia has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband will be able to buy new shuttering material. Shazia was very happy and relaxed after taking this loan, because this loan will help establish the business and their savings as well.
