Farhat
Farhat is a 32-year-old hard working housewife. She is living in Punjab, Pakistan with her husband, three daughters and one son. Her husband has been driving a taxi for eight years and this is the only source of income for her family.
Right now there is a lot of repairing and tuning work required in the engine of the taxi. Because of that, it’s almost impossible for him to get earnings . Farhat has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan, to pay for repairing the engine of her husband's taxi so that he can drive it properly. With the profit, her husband would buy one more taxi in the future. Farhat wishes to provide a quality education for her children, and she prays for the good health of her family and for the growth of her husband's business. She is very thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva.
