Jannat is a 49-year-old married woman who lives with her husband and seven children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband owns a business of household items on rent, in which he provides beds on rent to the general public. He has been doing this work for many years. To carry out his work, he has to stay at the shop to deal with customers.

He wants to buy more beds to cope with demand, but due to the high cost, he is unable to purchase them.

Jannat hopes that with the Kiva loan, her husband will be able to carry out his plans of purchasing more beds for his rent business. So she requested a loan so that her husband could buy more beds to enhance his business.

Jannat thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
