Naheed's Group's story

Naheed, about 34 years old, is the group leader of a three-member group from Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband runs a grocery shop. Her family is comprised of six members, including her husband and two sons, ages about 6 and 8 years.

The member standing in middle with raising hand is Naheed. Her husband helps a lot in her business to earn their livelihood. She is a very active lady who wants her husband to get some extra income from the grocery shop.

Naheed, along with two other members of her town, formed a group and this is their fifth loan from BRAC Pakistan for the development of their existing business. At present, her family monthly income is very low, and not sufficient to manage her family and to keep pace with the present society.

To improve her living conditions and earn some extra income, she wants to take a loan. With the loan, she will add some grocery items like rice, pulses (legumes), flour, sugar, wheat, sugar, tea, etc. to the existing business of her husband.

Naheed thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
