A loan of $450 helped to buy scrap iron, plastic, aluminum and copper to sell.


Irshad's story

Irshad is 37; she has four children and lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband is a scrap dealer; he purchases scrap iron, plastic accessories, aluminum, and copper from retailers or hawkers and sells them to a recycling factory. He has been doing same business for many years, and earning reasonable profit for his family.

He loves his children a lot, and wants to provide them a better way of living. He wants to earn maximum income to ensure and secure a better future for his children.

Recently, he met with a new retailer who has scrap in large quantities which is beyond from his purchasing capacity. Therefore, Irshad requested a loan so she could help her husband, and he would be able to buy that scrap material.

Irshad hopes that this loan will enhance the earning capacity of her husband; in this way she would be able to increase their savings.

Irshad seems very glad after taking this loan, and says thanks to Kiva.
