Her husband is a rickshaw driver by profession and drives rickshaw in Lahore city, which is a very populated area. Few days ago he got into a road accident; he was looking for the passenger standing beside the road, and a speedy car hit the rickshaw from behind. He did not get hurt, but the rickshaw body got seriously damaged and needs to be replaced with a new one. Her husband has some savings, but is short of finances to buy a new body for the auto rickshaw.
Therefore, Naheed requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband would be able to buy the body of auto rickshaw.
Naheed is very thankful to the Kiva and field partner BRAC Pakistan for this support.
