Zahida's Group's story

Zahida is a 45-year-old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of seven children and equally responsible for all of them. She belongs to an ultra poor family; that is why she cannot afford educational expenses. Most of her children are doing jobs as laborers on daily wages. One of her sons goes with his father to help him in his business. Her husband owns a blacksmith shop in which he provides the services of welding. He also provides door-to-door services to his customers. Due to the increase in iron prices, he is unable to buy sufficient welding material such as welding and soldering rods, etc. to carry on his business.

To fulfill the demand of his customers and to run his enterprise, he needs some capital to buy welding material. Zahida requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan for her husband so that he would be able to buy material to carry on with his business. Zahida is very glad and thankful to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
