Nadia is an active borrower of BRAC Pakistan. She lives with her three children and husband in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her husband is the guardian of her family. He has been running his own retail cosmetics shop for many years.

He wants to purchase different types of cosmetics products for reselling, but due to insufficient financial means he is unable to purchase these items. Therefore Nadia has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner, BRAC Pakistan. With the help of this loan she’ll enable her husband to purchase relevant items for his business so that he can earn more income for managing his business and household.

Nadia is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
