A loan of $475 helped to buy a welding plant for manufacturing..


Shaheen's story

Shaheen belongs to an ultra-poor family, living with her spouse and five children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband is a blacksmith. He manufactures iron accessories which are used in houses, such as iron doors or windows. He has been providing service making iron doors and windows and repairing broken accessories with the help of a welding plant.

A few days ago his welding plant went out of order due to overheating and needs to be replacement with new one. However, he does not have enough money due to a lot of household expenses.

Therefore, Shaheen has requested a loan from BRAC, an active field partner of Kiva, so that her husband will be able to buy new welding plant to continue his business.

Shaheen thanks Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
