A loan of $675 helped a member to buy a speaker and a tape for her husband to use to announce his presence on the street and advance his scrap business.

Rani's Group's story

Rani, 43, is a responsible mother and is living happily in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. This is her third loan with BRAC; she is a long-time member, and she borrows according to the needs of her family.

Rani belongs to a poor family and it is very difficult for her to meet household expenses with poor earnings. In fact, her husband owns a scrap shop and deals with scrap iron, aluminum, plastic bottles and other scrap goods. He uses a manual four-wheel cart and calls to the people loudly in the streets, asking who is willing to sell scrap goods.

It is very difficult for him to announce loudly to attract people to him on the streets. He wants to buy a speaker and a tape to repeat his announcement.

Therefore, Rani is requesting a loan for her husband, so that he can buy a speaker and a tape. With these products, Rani hopes that her husband will feel relaxed and drive his cart smoothly in the streets.

Rani is very impressed with this honorable support. She says thanks to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
