A loan of $375 helped to buy a stone polishing machine for her husband's business.


Mehwish's story

Mehwish is a 24-year-old woman residing in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She is a mother of three children. Her husband has been doing his own stone polishing business for the past 10 years. Her husband is the only one responsible for fulfilling the needs of the entire family.

Mehwish's husband wants to buy a new stone polishing machine and its supporting tools for his business so that he can provide better stone polishing services. But due to insufficient financial means, he is unable to buy these items to fulfill his business needs.

Therefore, Mehwish has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner BRAC Pakistan. With the help of this loan, she will provide financial assistance to her husband to buy the new stone polishing machine and accessories.

Mehwish is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for this financial support.
