A loan of $250 helped to buy scrap goods for resale.

Ghazala's story

Ghazala is aged 38. She is a responsible mother and living happily in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. This is her first loan with the BRAC. She is a new member, but she has agreed with the terms and condition of BRAC.

She belongs to an ultra-poor family, and it is very difficult for her to pay all the household expenses with the low income. Her husband owns a scrap shop and deals with scrap iron, aluminum, plastic bottles, etc. He has been running his business for many years, his shop situated near his home. The reason for their poverty is the selection of a low turn-over business.

Her husband had to spend his savings because of an accident, and now he does not have the amount to buy scrap goods. Therefore, Ghazala requested a loan for passing along to her husband, so that he could buy scrap iron, re-establish his enterprise, and make some savings to meet sudden needs or incidents. Ghazala is very impressed with this honorable support and shows her wish to take a huge loan, after this loan. She says "thank you," to the Kiva and to its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
