Rahat's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to repair her husband's rickshaw so he can drive and generate income for the family.

Rahat's story

Rahat is a 29-year-old lady living with her spouse and a daughter in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is pictured with her husband. She wants to save so that she can provide better living facilities to her children but it seems impossible in the absence of a profitable source of income. Her husband has been driving a rickshaw for several years but his income is insufficient to feed his entire family. He has to maintain the engine because it does not take a heavy load. He does not have sufficient cash on hand to fix the problem.

Therefore, Rahat has requested a Kiva loan from field partner BRAC Pakistan so her husband can fix the rickshaw’s engine. She hopes that she will be able to save enough to meet the needs of her family.
