A loan of $375 helped a member to buy material and tools for her husband's blacksmith shop.


Rukya Group's story

Rukya is a 31-year-old woman who is living in Lahore, Pakistan, with her husband. Her husband is a heart patient and she always worries about his health.

For four years, her husband has run a blacksmith shop, which is the only source of income for their family.

As a member of a two-person lending group, Rukya has requested a loan from Kiva partner, Brac Pakistan. Rukya will use her portion of the loan to help her husband in purchasing some materials and tools for his blacksmith shop. As they have no other source of income, with the help of this loan, her husband will be able to continue his business, and with the net profit, he will open a new shop for his son.

Rukya dreams for her children's bright future and prays for her husband's good health. She wants to say that Brac Pakistan is working very well in the field of microfinance and she is very thankful to Brac Pakistan and Kiva for helping her.
