Farida's story

Farida is a 42-year-old married woman living with her family members in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is an active borrower of BRAC Pakistan.
Her husband has been running a shop selling raw materials related to tailoring, which is the only source of income for the family. Many tailors and the ladies of his town like to buy laces, spools, threads, needles and packs of zippers from his shop. His customers appreciate his collection of laces. Currently he is interested in purchasing some of the latest variety of expensive laces to enhance his income but finds it difficult due to financial constraints. Therefore, Farida has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan, so her husband can buy stitching raw materials and expensive laces for reselling. This will not only help him to grow his lace selling business but will increase his net income and savings as well. He is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
