Shamim is a 45-year-old woman. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of five children. Her husband is a rickshaw driver by profession. For the past many days, his rickshaw has not been working properly, because of which he is unable to generate any amount of income. He wants to repair it as soon as possible.

However, due to the lack of money, Shamim’s husband finds it difficult to cover the cost of repairing the rickshaw. Therefore, Shamim has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to help her husband to cover the cost of repairing the rickshaw. This will help him to continue his business.

Shamim is so much thankful to Kiva.
