Since 2011, her husband has had been driving his own taxi, which is the only source of income for the family. However, he is not able to generate any income from the taxi, as its engine is not working properly and needs to be repaired. Shabana, as a member of a three-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva partner, BRAC Pakistan, to help her husband to repair the engine of his taxi, so that he can continue his business. With the profit, at first she will pay back the loan amount to Kiva, and then she will make some savings for her children's future. She hopes for a better future for her family.
