A loan of $300 helped to buy seasonal and fresh vegetables to sell.


Saleem's story

Saleem is 48, the mother of four children, living with her spouse and children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband is a green grocer by profession, and he has sold fresh vegetables at a shop in a nearby town for many years. Her husband offers seasonal and fresh vegetables to his customers. He has been feeding his family through the generated income from this vegetable shop.

Nowadays, the needs of his family suddenly increased and he does not have other sources to cope with these needs, so he decided to expand his current business. He wants to increase his stock on a daily basis so that he can maximize sales out of the vegetables.

Therefore, Saleem requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can buy excess seasonal vegetables. She thanks Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
