A loan of $250 helped to buy rice, sugar, and flour.


Sana's story

Sana is a 24-year-old married lady and has been running a small general store in her community for many years. She offers a variety of grocery items at a reasonable price and has retained many customers who regularly shop at her store. She makes enough to provide for her family.

To make her store fully stocked, she requested a loan from Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan, which she will use to buy rice, sugar, and flour from the market at lower rates. In this way she will be able to meet the increasing demand consistently. She wishes to utilize part of her revenues to increase her business capital.

Sana thanks Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
