A loan of $475 helped to buy planks, chipboard, door locks, and nails.

Nighat's story

Nighat is 45 years old; she is the mother of three children.
Her husband owns a wood shop, in which he sells planks, wooden boards, timber, chipboard, nails, and door locks to the furniture manufacturers. He purchases wood accessories from nearby markets and sells them to the carpenters. In his area, a lot of carpenters are ready to buy wood accessories on a daily basis. The raw material’s prices have been increasing day by day, which has exceeded his purchasing power.
Therefore, Nighat requested a loan from Kvia’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband would be able to buy raw material such as planks, chipboard, door locks, and nails etc to earn maximum profit.
