Nasra's husband is a welder by profession. She has requested a loan from Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan to help her husband. As the stock of his welding material is not enough to work efficiently, he needs to purchase more products to offer better and more professional services to his customers. This will going to help him to attract more customers, and to get a good profit in the future.

Nasra herself is a 55-year-old housewife. She always keeps smiling, even in the bad days of life. She strongly believe that ups and downs are a part of life, so there is no need to get worried; just keep yourself happy in every stage of life.

She wants to help her husband because he is the only earner for the family, and the income generated from his shop plays a very important role in meeting the daily household expenses. Presently his net income is not enough to pay for the daily and monthly expenses, which include electricity bills, gas and water bills, food expenses, children's education expenses, etc.

So Nasra has requested a loan to improve her husband's business. The Kiva loan would be helpful for him in purchasing a welding machine and a variety of welding tools.

Nasra wants to thank all Kiva lenders for their kind support. She says that the Kiva lenders are like angels, and the blessing of God in her life.
