A loan of $950 helped a member to buy new welding equipment.


Rukhsana's Group's story

Rukhsana belongs to a poor family, living happily with her spouse and five children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband is a blacksmith. He manufactures iron accessories for door and windows, which are used in houses. He has been providing door-to-door services to weld the broken accessories. A few days ago, his welding plant stopped working due to overheating and needs to be replaced. He wants to buy a new welding plant but he does not have money due to a lot of household expenses. Therefore, Rukhsana requested a loan from BRAC who is an active field partner of Kiva, so that her husband will be able to buy the welding plant for manufacturing iron accessories. Rukhsana thanks Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
