A loan of $475 helped a member to buy spare parts and tools for her son's generator-repair shop.


Shehnaz's Group's story

Shehnaz is a 54-year old married woman, living with her spouse and four children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She belongs to a happy family because her son earns sufficient income to meet daily household expenses.

Her son has been running a generator-repair workshop for many years in a nearby town. He is very professional and experienced in his work. As we know, there are lots of problems due to load shedding of electricity, so most of the people like to use a generator to generate the electricity. Due to heavy usage, most of its parts become out of order. This is the reason her son has so many customers for generator repairing.

Her son is very hard-working and honest; he asks very low services charges against his services. That is why people like to repair their generators from him.

Her son wants to buy spare parts for generators and tools for generator repair, but he does not have sufficient savings to spend for purchases because recently he spent his savings for an emergency need.

Therefore, Shehnaz has requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that her son will be able to buy his desired spare parts and tools for repairing.

Shehnaz hopes that through all this purchasing, customers will be attracted toward his shop, which would led to an increase in income and savings.

Shehnaz has praises for the lenders and is very thankful to the Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan
