A loan of $1,675 helped a member to replace the crushing blade for her husband's plastic raw material manufacturing business.


Rubina's Group's story

Rubina aged 42, is represented here as the leader of her group of 4 members. Each member of this group has taken loans according to their needs. The featured borrower Rubina took a loan for her husband's business. Her husband supplies plastic raw material to manufacturers in different firms. In fact he buys used plastic bottles and accessories from scrap dealers. After washing and crushing them into small pieces, he sells it to the manufacturers for reshaping. The manufacturers give it different shapes through compression molding machines. One day while crushing a hard plastic bottle the crushing blade inside the machine became stuck. Its blade was horribly damaged and needs replacement but he does not have enough money to buy a new crushing blade. Therefore, Rubina requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan. Through the loan amount her husband will be able to buy a new crushing blade easily. Rubina says thanks to Kiva because her husband does not have another source of income.

In this group: Rubina, Naghma, Saima, Shamim
