Farzana is a 31-year-old woman, living with her five children and spouse in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Farzana’s husband has been driving an auto rickshaw and pays daily rent because this rickshaw does not belonging to him. He belongs to an ultra poor family and has been supporting his children. Now his children are growing older and their needs grow as well. He decided to buy his own rickshaw so he wouldn't have to pay daily rent.

Farzana has been making savings for many days to buy a new auto rickshaw for her husband, but at the time of purchasing some money became short. Therefore, Farzana requested a loan so that her husband can buy a new rickshaw with the contribution of savings. She hopes that now her husband would be able to gain more income because now he will not pay daily rent to anyone. Farzana is very happy after taking this loan; she thanks Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
