A loan of $500 helps to maintain the body of her husband's transportation rickshaw so it will run smoothly.


Razia Bb's story

Razia Bb is 42-year-old woman living with her husband and five children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is standing with her husband in the picture.

Razia Bb wants to collect some savings so she can provide better living facilities for her children but it seems impossible in the absence of a profitable source of income. Her husband has been driving a moto rickshaw for several years; his income is insufficient to feed his entire family.

Her husband has to maintain the rickshaw’s body but he does not have sufficient money to fix the problem. Therefore, Razia Bb requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so her husband would be able to maintain the moto rickshaw’s body. She hopes that she would be able to collect enough savings till the time to marry her husband.

Razia Bb thanks Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.


This loan is special because:

It provides financial services in some of the poorest parts of Pakistan.
