Rehana is a 54-year old married woman living with her spouse and 5 children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband has grown old and sits idle at home. Her elder son owns a butcher shop and he earns sufficient income for the whole family. Recently he spends a huge part of his income to pay utility bills which decreases his purchasing power for new inventory of his butcher shop. He tried to take out loans from banks and other organizations however he does not have any property against security. Therefore, Rehana requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan which will provide the facility without asking about their assets. Rehana wants to provide higher education foir her children. It is her dream to provide all facilities of life for her children. She is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan.
