Sakina is the age of 40, mother of two children, living with her spouse and children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband is a green grocer by profession, and he has sold fresh fruits at a shop in a nearby town for many years. Her husband offers seasonal and fresh fruits to his customers. He has been feeding his family through the generated income from this fruit shop. Nowadays, the needs of his family suddenly increased and he does not have other sources to cope with these needs. So he decided to expand his current business. He wants to increase his stock on a daily basis so that he can maximize sales out of the fruits. So, Sakina demanded for loan so that her husband would be able to buy more fresh fruits for selling. Sakina is very thankful to kiva and field partner brac Pakistan.
