Saima
Saima is a 27-year-old woman. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother of four children. Her husband is a van driver by profession. For the past many days the engine of the van has not worked properly. Because of this he is unable to generate any amount of income. He wants to repair it as soon as possible. However, due to the lack of money he finds it difficult to cover the cost of repairing the engine. Therefore Saima has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to help her husband cover the cost of repairing. This will help him to continue his business. Saima is very much thankful to KIVA.
