Parveen Akhter's Group's story

Parveen Akhter lives in a historic city in Pakistan called Lahore. Lahore is the second largest city of Pakistan and is known for its history and culture.
She is a 31-year-old lady who has been married to 39-year-old G. H. for the last 13 years. She is the mother of three daughters and two sons and lives in a three-room brick house with her family in an area named Mughalpura. Her husband is a rickshaw driver by profession. He provides transport facilities to his clients. Parveen supports her family financially by sewing clothes for her neighboring clients. She found the need to do this work a few years ago when she observed that her husband’s income alone was not enough to fulfill the basic needs of the family.

She has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband. With the loan, he will buy a new rickshaw because his current rickshaw has become old and he cannot work with it for long hours. Parveen is hopeful that her husband will be able to increase his income by purchasing a new rickshaw and as a result her family will be able to have a better living standard. This is the second time Parveen has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah.
