Farzana's story

Farzana is a 43-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of two daughters and two sons. She requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, for her husband. Her husband is a shoe-maker by profession. He makes shoes by hand, and his hand-made shoes are very famous in his hometown.

Many manufacturers like to give him orders for making shoes and remain on the waiting list. Earlier, he has been providing only services to his clients for shoe making, but now he has gotten a lot of market experience and wants to buy materials on his own for shoe making so that he can earn better than past. She wants to construct her house, provide better education to her children, and establish the business for her husband. Farzana is thankful to Kiva and it's field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
