Khurshid's story

Khurshid is living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan, with her spouse and 5 children. Her husband owns a small jewelry shop in which he sells precious stones for artificial jewelry and bridal dresses. He presents his jewelry under a display glass case for the attraction of customers. Khurshid's husband has only one source of income. He has to pay the expenses of utility bills, school fees for his children and household expenses alone. The condition of his house is not up to the mark for living and he wants to construct a new house. For this purpose, more earnings are required so that he can save some money for the construction. Therefore, Khurshid requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner’s BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can increase his inventory and earnings as well. She hopes that they will construct this house soon because she has to marry her elder son so that he can pass his life comfortably. Khurshid is very thankful to the Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan because they showed her a beam of hope to fulfill her desires.
