A loan of $650 helped a member to purchase a new taxi for her brother.

Shazia's Group's story

Ms. Shazia is a 40-year-old married woman and the mother of two sons and two daughters. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. All of the children are students. Her husband has been running a tire shop.

Shazia's brother is a taxi driver, but his income is insufficient. So, he is interested in purchasing a new taxi, which will help him to increase his savings and net income. For that, Shazia, as a member of a three-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva's Partner BRAC Pakistan for her brother.

She is hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for her brother.
