Rubina is a 40-year-old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of six children. Her husband provides services of white wash to his customers; sometimes he has to go out of city as well. Her husband has to sit in front of a paint dealer’s shop so he can easily find a new customer, and sometimes he does not find any customers.

Her husband got a new contract for white wash services, but he does not have paint brush or rollers to do white wash. Rubina requested a loan so that her husband would be able to buy new paint brush, rollers, kerosene oil etc.

Her husband’s income is very poor. That is why her family is passing their lives in miserable conditions. She wants to change this condition of her family and hopes that this loan will prove beneficial for her.

She is very thankful to Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
