Currently, her husband is in need of money to change the tires of his taxi as the old tires are unusable now, and he can’t drive the taxi properly with the old tires. Hussan, as a member of two-person group, has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband can buy new tires for his taxi. He would also do some repair work in his taxi. This would increase the monthly income and savings of her husband, and in the future, he would buy a new taxi with the profit amount.
As this taxi is the only source of income for her family, this loan is very important and beneficial for her. She desires to educate her children in good schools, and she is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for helping her.
