Hanifan's Group's story

Hanifan is a 29-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She requested a loan for her husband’s greengrocery business. Her husband sells seasonal vegetables from a cart. He purchases fresh vegetables in bulk and sells in the local community from his cart.

He is using a donkey cart to carry excess vegetables. With his donkey cart he can easily carry more vegetables than a manual cart. His savings have been spent to purchase the donkey cart, and he does not have enough money to buy more stock of vegetables to sell.

Therefore, Hanifan requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner so that her husband can buy vegetables in bulk in large quantities. Hanifan is very thankful to Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
