Abida's Group's story

Abida is a 37-year-old hardworking housewife. She is the mother of four children.

Her husband owns a vegetable shop that is the only source of income for his family. He purchases a variety of fresh and seasonal vegetables from the field and sells them in the main market. Now he hired a shop for selling vegetables, and he needs to purchase vegetables for his shop. For that his wife, Abida, has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to help her husband to purchase vegetables. This will help him to offer more variety to his customers and to increase his net income. Abida will save the profit amount for future needs or medical expenses of her children.

Abida prays for the success of her husband’s business. She is feeling relaxed and happy after taking the loan. Abida says thanks to Kiva and to its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
