Samina's Group's story

Samina is 35-year-old lady living with her three children and husband in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

She owns a general store at home; she has allotted a portion of her house for the general store. One of her drawing rooms opens through the front side in the street--she is utilizing that room for the general store. She offers many items such as rice, flour, pulses, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, soap, and biscuits.

She has been running this business for many years and this is the major source of income for her family because her earnings are very poor. Now she wants to grow her business in increments for the needs of her family. So she decided to grow her business and contacted Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan for a loan.

She will buy rice, flour, pulses, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, soap, and biscuits. She hopes that her general store would work better than earlier.
