Parveen is the age of 52; she is the mother of three children. Her husband owns an electrician shop in which he sells electrical goods; he also provides services for repairing electric water motors and pumps. He binds the motors of washing machines, water pumps and ceiling fans. For this purpose he has to have a lot of copper cable coils, which are so expensive and out of his purchasing power.

Therefore, Parveen requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so her husband becomes empowered to buy copper coils to carry on his services. In addition, he wants some extra electric switches, bulbs, bulb holders, sockets, etc.

This is first loan for Parveen; she showed her wish to take a huge amount after this loan.
