Samina has been making savings for many days to buy a new auto rickshaw for her husband, but at the time of purchasing, some money remained short.
Therefore, Samina requested a loan for her husband so he can buy the new rickshaw with the contribution of savings.
Samina is a 33-year-old woman, living with her 6 children and spouse in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She hopes that now her husband will be able to have more income because now he will not pay a daily fair to anyone.
Samina was very happy after taking this loan, and says thanks to Kiva and it's field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
