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

A loan helped to buy a new van to provide better facilities for her husband's customers.

Saima's story

Saima is a 31-year-old married woman. She has applied for a loan for her husband, who is a van driver by profession. He drives in the main city and makes enough income to cover all the expenses of his family. He wants to purchase a new van, as the old one is causing a lot of pollution and is consuming too much oil for its work. That is why Saima has availed herself a loan of 120,000 PKR for her husband to buy a new van to provide better facilities to his customers. Saima is hopeful that this loan will be a productive one for her husband and will bring positive changes to his business. Saima feels more comfortable in wearing a veil.
