Mariyam's story

Mariyam is a 42-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of five children.

Her husband owns a fruit shop in the market, which is the only source of income for the family. He sells apples, bananas and oranges in his shop. Presently, he is interested in offering more variety to his customers, which will help him to increase his net income and savings as well. However, due to the lack of money, he finds it difficult. Therefore, his wife Mariyam has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan so that she can help her husband to purchase a variety of fruits from the field to sell in the market at profitable prices.

With the profit amount, her husband wants to grow his business in the future. Mariyam is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
