Mrs. Anwar is a 55-year-old hardworking housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan, with her husband and children. Her husband is a rickshaw driver by profession, which is the only source of income for the family. However, currently he is not able to generate any income from the rickshaw, as its engine is not working properly and needs to be repaired.

Mrs. Anwar has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to meet the cost of repairing the rickshaw's engine. She desires to provide quality education to 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.
