Nasreen, a 42-year-old hardworking housewife, lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband, three daughters and two sons. Her husband is a janitor by profession, but his monthly income is not enough to meet the household expenses of his family. Therefore for the past five years he has been supplementing his income by driving a taxi at night.

Currently unable to generate any taxi income because it needs to be repaired, Nasreen has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to help pay the cost of repairs. With future profits, her husband wants to open a new auto mechanic shop.

Nasreen desires to provide quality education to all of her children, and she prays for the good health of her family and for the growth of her husband's business. She is very much thankful to BRAC.
