Shaheen's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to help her husband to repair his taxi.

Shaheen's story

Shaheen is a responsible mother of four children, and she lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her husband has been providing transport facilities by driving a taxi for 8 years. Her husband is responsible for meeting the needs of the entire family.

Now her husband needs to do maintenance on his taxi because its current condition is not good. It requires maintenance which incurs charges on a daily basis. Due to insufficient financial means, her husband is unable to do this maintenance on his taxi, and therefore Shaheen has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.

With the help of this loan, Shaheen's husband can afford the maintenance costs easily. Then he can provide better transport facilities and earn profitable income. Shaheen also plans to make savings with the profit amount of her husband's income, in order to be able to meet her family's needs in the future.

Shaheen is very grateful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
