A loan of $600 helped a member to buy fabrics for resale.


Azra's Group's story

Azra is 47 years old and married, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of five children. Part of her house is still under construction because she does not have savings to complete the remaining construction.

Her husband owns a clothing business. His practice is to buy fabrics from wholesalers and sell them to retailers. He has built up a good reputation in the market. Due to the large numbers of customers, the demand for fabrics is increasing day by day, but he does not have sufficient money to buy more fabrics.

Therefore Azra has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can be able to buy more fabrics to fulfill the demand. She is in her sixth loan cycle and has shown an excellent repayment behavior. She has already taken loans from BRAC and invested in the business.

Azra hopes that her savings will much increase, and she will complete the remaining construction of her house. She dreams of a bright future for her children, of building the business, and of a better standard of living for her family.

She is very thankful to the Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
