Razia's Group's story

Razia is a 42-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan with her family. Her husband has been successfully running a small general store at the corner of his house for many years. Her husband is also assisted by a young boy in purchasing stock of goods from the market as he has maintained many contacts over the years. Razia is a mother of seven children and is motivated to provide her family with good quality food, clothing, and health expenses.

Razia wants to grow the business of her husband so she requested a loan from BRAC Pakistan, Kiva's field partner, so that her husband could buy more stock of rice, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, soap and biscuits. She is an honest and regular client of BRAC Pakistan, in her 7th loan cycle with good repayment history. She is expecting a boost in their earnings and dreams of expanding the business further in the future. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
