She requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan to buy tires for a tractor trolley for her husband. Her husband provides a loading and unloading service for construction materials such as sand, soil, and bricks for builders. Due to continuously working, the tires of the tractor trolley have been wearing out and not picking up the load or the tires are punctured.
Therefore, Riffat requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband can buy new tires for the tractor trolley. She wants her husband to carry on this business because this is the only source of income for her family. She has some savings but it is insufficient to buy a new trolley so she requested a loan.
Riffat is very thankful for Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan.
