Rashida is a 58-year-old responsible mother of 3 children. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband and children. Her husband is a janitor in a hospital but his salary is not enough to meet the household expenses. He wants to start his own work.
Rashida has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. Her husband would purchase a rickshaw with the loan and he would drive the rickshaw at night along with his present job. In this way, his monthly income would be increased
Rashida is very hopeful for this loan and she is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
