Her husband is a driver by profession, and he provides transportation services using his three-wheeled rickshaw. He has been driving a rickshaw for many years to meet the family expenses, but now it requires proper maintenance to keep it in its functional routine.
For this reason, Abida has applied for a loan for her husband. He wants to maintain the engine and needs to buy a new piston, and the engine troubleshooting also demands a lot of labor costs.
This maintenance will help him drive more smoothly and provide better transport service to his passengers. But he does not have sufficient money to buy the piston and pay for labor to fix the problem.
Therefore, Abida has requested a loan for her husband so that he can maintain his rickshaw. Abida is hopeful that this loan will be a productive one for her husband and will bring positive changes to his business.
Abida says thank you to Kiva and to its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
