Zobia's Group's story

Zobia is the group leader of this three person lending group. She lives in a remote area of Lahore, Pakistan. She belongs to a poor family. She has a large family size with eight children. She is a responsible mother and always tries her best to provide better facilities to her children.

Her husband is the only earner in the family, and his net income is too low to meet the household needs. He owns a clothing business. He purchases clothing from different areas and sell it at his community market at a profitable price. His customers love the variety he offers.


Zobia has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to help her husband. He will use the loan amount to purchase a variety of clothing to sell. Zobia will use profit amount for her children's educational needs as well as household expenses. She hopes that through this loan her husband will be able to work more efficiently. She feels very happy and relaxed after taking out the loan. She is thankful to all the BRAC Pakistan team and all Kiva lenders.

In this group: Zobia, Shakeela, Nagina
