Kousar is a 42-year-old married lady. Her husband is a driver by profession and provides transportation services using his three-wheeled rickshaw. He has been driving a rickshaw for the past nine years to meet the family expenses. Her husband is the only bread earner, and Kousar applied for a loan of 30,000 PKR (Pakistani rupees) for her husband. He wants to buy new tires for his vehicle. This will help him drive more smoothly and provide better transport service to his passengers.
