Noreen is a 55-year-old, married woman and a mother of seven children. Her husband is a driver by profession. He provides transportation services using his three-wheeled rickshaw. He has been driving rickshaw for many years to meet the family expenses, but now the rickshaw requires proper maintenance to keep it in its functional routine.

For this reason, Noreen has applied for a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband can buy new wheels and maintain the rickshaw's engine. This will help him drive more smoothly and provide better transport service to his passengers. She is hopeful that this loan will be a productive one for her husband and will bring positive changes to his business.

Noreen gives thanks to Kiva and to its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
