Asia's story

Asia is a 36-year-old woman, living with her three children and spouse in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is pictured with her husband.

She has been stitching clothes at home to support her husband and earn a reasonable income. Her husband has been driving a moto rickshaw for many years. With the help of savings, he has purchased a used moto rickshaw. But the rickshaw body and engine parts (ring, piston, and head) are not working properly and he should replace the seat covers of the rickshaw. He does not have enough cash to buy new a body, maintain engine parts and replace seat covers. Now, he wants to start driving but has to pay a lump sum amount to the mechanic to buy the rickshaw body, maintain engine parts and replace the seat covers.

Therefore, Asia requested a loan for her husband so that he can buy a new rickshaw body and seat covers and maintain a few engine parts to drive the rickshaw smoothly.

She thanks Kiva and field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
