Sadiqan's story

Sadiqan is a 38-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan with her family. Her husband has been running a small general store at the corner of his house for many years. He also assists his younger brother by purchasing stock of goods from the market, as he has maintained many contacts over the years. She is a mother of four children and is motivated to provide her family with good quality food, clothing, and health expenses.

Sadiqan wants to grow the business of her husband so he can generate additional income to support the family. This is the reason she has requested a loan from Kiva's field partner's BRAC Pakistan. Now, he can easily buy more stock of rice, sugar, cooking oil, detergent, soap and biscuits. She is an honest and regular client of BRAC Pakistan, and she is in her second loan cycle with good repayment history. She is expecting a boost in the earnings and dreams of expanding the business further in the future. She is very thankful to Kiva field partners BRAC.
