Kishwar, age 46, is a responsible mother living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She has long been a member of BRAC and this is her fifth loan with them.

Her husband owns a scrap shop and deals with iron, aluminum, plastic bottles, waste paper, etc. He has been running his business for many years. Nowadays, due to household expenses, he does not have enough money to buy scrap goods and does not have scrap to sell for getting money.

Therefore, Kishwar requested a loan for her husband so that he can buy scrap goods, establish his enterprise, and make some savings to meet sudden needs or incidents. She is very impressed with this honorable support and shows her wish to take more loans after the repayment of this loan. She thanks Kiva and their field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
