Zahida is 37-year-old woman. She is living in Lahore, Pakistan. She has no kids; she received check-ups from many specialists in vain.

The financial condition of her family is not good; her husband owns a small tailoring shop. Now he wants to expand his shop and wants to hire a new worker so that he could take more orders for sewing cloth. He has been expanding his shop, and hired a newcomer as well, but he does not have an extra Juki machine for him.

Therefore, Zahida requested a loan for her husband so that he could buy a new machine to enhance his tailoring shop.

Zahida will treat herself to a specialist so that she could bear a baby boy; she hopes that God will bless her with a kid.

Zahida is very thankful to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
