A loan of $475 helped a member to buy various kinds of fish to sell.

Mumtaz's Group's story

Mumtaz is 35 years old; she is a responsible mother living happily in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. This is her third loan with the BRAC; she is a longtime member; she has been taking loans according to the needs of her family.

She belongs to a poor family and it is very difficult for her to fulfill all the household expenses at low earnings. Her husband has been changing the nature of his business according to the weather; he sells vegetables in the summer season and fish in the winter season. Nowadays, the winter season is going on and this season he does not have enough money to buy fish because the prices of fish have inflated since last year.

Therefore, Mumtaz requested a loan for her husband, so he can buy various kinds of fish to carry on his business. She is very impressed with this honorable support. She thanks Kiva and the field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
