A loan of $1,175 helped a member to repair a rickshaw.

Kareem's Group's story

Kareem is 54 years old and married with two children who are 21 and 17 years old. Both of her sons are masons and contribute to the family financially.

Kareem herself is a very cooperative lady. She weaves carpets and rugs, which is considered a very demanding task among people. She works very hard to fulfill orders and earns good money after completing them on time. Her income allows her to manage the household expenses.

Her husband is a rickshaw driver by profession. He drives a rickshaw in different areas and provides his services to the passengers. He has set his charges route-wise which are very affordable for his passengers.

Kareem has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her husband's business. He will invest the loan in repairing his rickshaw because it is creating problems for him while driving.

Kareem is hopeful that the fully repaired rickshaw will enable her husband to provide his services to many more passengers, and that he will be able to drive it for longer hours.
