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

A loan helped to maintain the body of her husband's rickshaw for his rickshaw transportation service and earn a profitable income.

Zarina's story

Zarina is a 42-year-old married woman and the mother of three children, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is pictured with her husband. Her financial condition is not good.

Her husband has been driving a moto-rickshaw, a type of three-wheeled rickshaw which consists of a motorbike, for many years. This rickshaw is being driven over local roads and for small distances. Its body is made of polyester, which is not strong enough to bear jerks over roads. Now the rickshaw body needs to be replaced because it rattles during driving. That is the reason her husband wants to buy a new body for his moto-rickshaw.

Therefore, she has requested a loan so that her husband can maintain the rickshaw body so he can drive the rickshaw smoothly and earn a profitable income for his entire family and support them. Zarina says thanks to Kiva and Field Partner BRAC Pakistan.
