Asfa's story

Asfa is a 23-year-old married woman living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of two children. Her husband is a welder and provides welding services in his community. He welds motorbike spare parts and doors and windows which are usable in houses. He has been providing door-to-door services to weld broken accessories. A few days ago, his welding equipment has become out-of-order due to overheating and needs to be replaced with a new one. He wants to buy new welding equipment, but he does not have the money due to lot of household expenses. Therefore, Asfa has requested a loan from BRAC Pakistan who is an active field partner of Kiva, so that her husband will be able to buy welding equipment and additional iron rods for manufacturing. She thanks Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan.
