A loan of $200 helped to buy electric wires, cables, bulbs, switches, and coils to sell.

Farida's story

Farida is 51 years old and the mother of five children. Her husband owns an electrician shop in which he sells electrical products and provides repair services. He binds the motors coils of washing machines, water pumps and ceiling fans. For this purpose, he requires a lot of copper cable coils, which are very expensive and out of his purchasing power.

Therefore, Farida requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can be empowered to buy copper coils to carry on his services. In addition, he wants to buy some extra electric switches, bulbs, bulb holders, sockets etc.

This is the first loan for Farida. She wishes to take a huge loan next time.
