Shehnaz is the age of 53. She is living with her husband happily in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband owns a small general store in a nearby town to support his family. He is a very energetic and honest person. He opens his shop early in the morning and closes it late at night. His beloved customers suggested for him to offer bakery items also, because there is not any nearby bakery. He is very famous in his street due to his honesty. He wants to offer bakery items as well but he does not have cash in hand to buy bakery items to sell.

Therefore, Shehnaz requested a loan for her husband from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband would be able to buy fresh and healthy bakery items such as bream, jam, butter and cookies.

Shehnaz says thank to Kiva and to its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
