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

A loan helped to buy a moto-rickshaw body for her husband's transportation services business, so he can turn his motorbike into a moto-rickshaw and can generate income for the family.

Azra's story

Azra is thirty-four years old. She lives with her daughter and spouse in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She was photographed with her husband.

Her husband had been running a small food stall for many years, which proved less beneficial. He could hardly fulfill the family's expenses. He decided to start a transportation services business, because this profession requires low capital but has high turnover. He already has a motorbike, which he wants to convert into a moto-rickshaw.

The moto-rickshaw shown in the picture does not belong to him, but its owner is selling its body. He wants to buy this body and attach it to his own bike, to convert it into a moto-rickshaw. But he does not have cash in hand and savings.

This is the reason Azra requested a Kiva loan from field partner, BRAC Pakistan. She will use the loan for her husband, so he can buy the moto-rickshaw body. Azra is very thankful to Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan, over this honorable support.
