Asma
Asma is 26 years old. She is an active borrower of BRAC Pakistan who lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of two children.

Her husband has a small rent-a-bike business. This is the only source of income for his family. Currently, he is interested to purchase a bike for his shop. Due to the lack of money, however, he finds it difficult.

Therefore Asma has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to help her husband. This will help him to improve his business, which will gradually increase his net income as well. Asma promises to pay back the loan amount on time. She is so thankful to Kiva lenders and BRAC Pakistan.
