Shenaz is aged 35 years. She is the mother of four children. Her husband has owned a vegetable shop in a nearby town, for many years. Her husband offers seasonal vegetables to his customers. He opens his shop early in the morning and closes at evening. But nowadays, he gets finished for the day too early, after selling all the vegetables. He wants to increase the stock available on a daily basis, so that he could sell the maximum amount of vegetables, until evening comes. This would enable him to get a maximum reward, for his efforts.

Therefore, Shenaz requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan. She will use the loan to enable her husband to buy more seasonal vegetables than he has in the past.
