A loan of $1,200 helped a member to purchase a variety of fruit from the field to sell.

Nasreen's Group's story

Nasreen is a 50-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan and is the mother of four children. Her husband owns a fruit shop in the market which is the only source of income for the family. He sells apples, bananas and oranges in his shop.

He is now interested in offering more variety to his customers which will help him to increase his net income and also his savings. However, due to the lack of capital, he finds this difficult. Therefore, his wife Nasreen as a member of a four-person lending group has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. This is so she can help her husband to purchase a variety of fruit from the field to sell in the market at a profitable price. With the profit, her husband wants to grow his business in the future. Nasreen is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
