Farhat is 29 years old, married, and the mother of 5 children. Her husband is a driver by profession and provides transportation services by using his rickshaw, which always remains in bad condition. He has been driving a rickshaw for many years to meet the family expenses, but now it requires proper maintenance to keep it in its functional routine. For this reason, Farhat has contacted Kiva field partner BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can repair his rickshaw. He wants to maintain the engine’s piston, one wheel, and wants to pay labor costs to cover it. This will help him drive more smoothly and provide better transportation services to his passengers.

Farhat is hopeful that this loan will be a productive one for her husband and will bring positive changes to his business. She thanks Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
