Nusrat is a 32-year-old lady. Her residence is in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of two children. Her husband owns a furniture shop in which he manufactures wooden furniture such as chairs, tables, almira and beds. Her husband has been making furniture for many years with the help of two workers. His practice is to make furniture and then polish the furniture for finishing. Polish increases the shine, grace and value of furniture.

The demand for manufacturing suddenly increased,and her husband has spent all the money to buy raw materials instead of furniture polish. Now he does not have enough to buy his remaining raw material. Therefore, Nusrat requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so her husband would be able to buy remaining inventory. Nusrat is very thankful to the Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan for this honorable support.
