Reshman is a 44-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of three children. Her husband provides services of whitewash to his customers. He stands in the bazaar with other laborers to look after the customers for providing services.

Her husband got a new contract for whitewash, but he does not have paint to provide services. Due to lack of funds, Reshman is compelled to take a loan so that her husband can buy paint to keep continuing his services.

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.
