A loan of $475 helped to buy tools for her son to provide construction services.


Bashiran's story

Bashiran is the age of 53, and is living in a rural area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her son is a mason by profession. He has been constructing buildings and houses for many years. He is very expert in his art; he has constructed a lot of beautiful buildings in his career. He uses tools such as a brick trowel, buttering trowel, pointing trowel, hammer, chisel, joiner and a level, which have become worn out. He wants to buy new tools to continue his construction services, but he does not have sufficient cash in hand to buy the described tools. Therefore, Bashiran requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so her son can buy the tools for his construction work. Bashiran thanks Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
