Shagufta's Group's story

This is 42-year-old Shagufta. She is married and has five children. She is living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

In 1995, her husband established a bushiness of clothes selling in his nearby town. Now, as his children are growing up, their needs are growing as well. With the rapid increase in the necessities of the family, he considers its necessary that his business should grow also. He does not have any other source of income to fulfill the needs of his family. He decided to establish his current enterprise with fresh capital but he does not have sufficient money for investment.

Shagufta requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner’s BRAC Pakistan so that her husband could buy variety of clothes for ladies and gents to sell. She hopes that this loan will bring positive changes in the enterprise of her husband and in her family as well. Shagufta is very thankful to Kiva and their field partner BRAC Pakistan.
