Jamila's Group's story

Jamila’s husband is a kind and hard-working person. He has grown old now and does not have as much working capacity as he was young. Her husband is a poor person but loves his family very much. He tries to make sure that his family does not have any needs left unfulfilled, so he keeps on with his carpentry work in old age. He is involved in his own business to have a regular income in the family. Her husband is involved in manufacturing and selling furniture, such as tables, chairs, beds, etc. He started this business over 35 years ago.

Jamila does not work; she stays at home and most of the days she gets sick. She has previously obtained loans for business; she is adding a second loan for her selection of handmade furniture. Today, her husband has many regular customers and also takes orders from other cities. This business yields a good income for her, but her family's needs are increasing day by day and he needs to earn more money. Now her husband wants to buy more raw materials for making furniture in order to expand his business. This is why she came to BRAC Pakistan and wishes to obtain a loan to buy raw materials for marking furniture.

Jamila hopes that this loan will prove beneficial and productive for her business as well as for her family. She says thanks to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan for this honorable support.
