Yasmeen is a 35-year-old married woman. She lives with her husband and four children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan.

Her husband has been driving an auto rickshaw in the city of Lahore for many years, but now his rickshaw’s body and engine are fully damaged. He has sold his rickshaw to a scrap dealer at a very low price. Now he wants to buy a new auto rickshaw but the funds are still short. Her husband is unable to earn even a single penny for his family without a rickshaw. Therefore, Yasmeen requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan. Through the contribution of this loan amount her husband can easily buy a new rickshaw.

Her husband and Yasmeen thank Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
