A loan of $400 helped to buy inventory for her general store.


Allah Rakhi's story

Allah Rakhi is a 45-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan, with her family. Her son has been successfully running a small general store at the corner of his house for many years. He also assists his younger brother by purchasing a stock of goods from the market, as he has maintained many contacts over the years. Allah Rakhi is a mother of five children and is motivated to provide her family with good quality food and clothing and also cover health expenses. She wants to grow her son's business, so she requested a loan from Kiva's field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so he can buy more rice, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, soap and biscuits. She is an honest and regular client of BRAC Pakistan, and she is in her fifth loan cycle with good repayment history. She is expecting a boost in the store's earnings and dreams of expanding the business further in the future. She is very thankful to Kiva's field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
