Parveen Akhtar's story

Parveen Akhtar is married and has two children. Both of her children are enrolled in school. They all live in a small house in a distant village of District Gujrat, Pakistan. Both Parveen Akhtar and her husband are illiterate, and this has made their life very difficult. They are living in very poor circumstances.

Her husband is a rickshaw driver by profession. This auto rickshaw is their only source of income. With the requested loan amount, her husband will repair the rickshaw, which will enable him to earn more money.

The profit resulting from this loan will help her to pay her children's school fees and provide some basic food to the family. She is confident that the loan amount will be productive for her husband’s work. She is thankful to Kiva, its lenders, and field partner JWS.
