Rukhsana is a 44-year-old hard-working housewife. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her husband is a security guard by profession but his monthly income is not enough to fulfill the household expenses of his family. Therefore for the past 4 years he has also been driving a taxi at night. Currently he is not able to generate any income from the taxi, as its engine is not working properly and needs to be repaired. Rukhsana has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to meet the amount needed to repair the engine of her husband's taxi. With the profit her husband wants to open a new auto mechanic shop in the future. Rukhsana desires to provide quality education to her all children and she prays for the good health of her family and for the growth of her husband's business. She is very thankful to BRAC.
