Saima's story

Saima lives in Rawalpindi. She is a housewife and a mother of five children. Her husband has a small bookbinding business. They cover all their expenses with the income from the business, so it is vital that it is profitable. Given their big family, her husband wants to expand his binding business by buying more material used in binding books. But given their small income, which only covers their daily expenses, it has not been possible. Therefore, as a dedicated, wife Saima has applied for a loan to help her husband in his business. They are thankful to Kiva and BRAC.
