Nazia's story

Nazia is a 48-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan, with her family. Her husband has been successfully running a small general store at the corner of his house for many years. Her husband also assists his younger brother by purchasing stock of goods from the market, as he has maintained many contacts over the years. She is a mother of six children and is motivated to provide her family with good quality food, clothing, and health expenses. Nazia wants to grow the business of her husband, so she requested a loan from Kiva's field partner's BRAC Pakistan so that her husband could buy more stock of rice, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, soap and biscuits. She is an honest and regular client of BRAC Pakistan. She is in her third loan cycle with good repayment history. She is expecting a boost in her earnings and dreams of expanding the business further in the future. She is very thankful to Kiva field partner BRAC Pakistan.
