Syeeda is 32 years old. She is a responsible and diligent mother of three children. Her husband died last year and one of her sons is currently studying in school. Her elder son is working as an auto mechanic in a workshop and this is the only source of income for her family. He is working hard to educate his younger brother and to meet the household expenses.

Syeeda has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. Her son wants to open his own workshop. He is a skilled auto mechanic and their monthly income and savings would be increased if he has his own workshop. With the loan amount, he would also purchase some new tools and equipment for vehicle repairing and tuning.

Syeeda is very hopeful for this loan and she is thankful to Kiva and BRAC for helping her.
