A loan helped to repair her husband's taxi.


Shamim's story

Shamim is a responsible mother of six children. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her husband has been providing transport facilities by driving a taxi for eight years. Her husband is responsible to fulfill the needs of the entire family.

Her husband needs do maintenance on his taxi because the current condition of his taxi is not good. It requires more maintenance charges on a daily basis. Due to insufficient financial means, her husband is unable to do maintenance on his taxi.

Therefore, Shamim has applied for a Kiva loan from its field partner BRAC Pakistan. With the help of this loan, Shamim's husband can afford the maintenance cost easily and provide better transport facilities to earn a profitable income. Shamim also plans to make savings with the profit amount from her husband's income to meet her family's needs in the future.

Shamim is very grateful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
