A loan of $1,100 helped a member to pay for engine repairs for her husband's taxi.


Zubaida's Group's story

Zubaida is 55 years old and a hard-working housewife. She lives in Punjab, Pakistan with her husband, three daughters, and two sons. Two of her children are government employees, one is a driver, and another is a student. Her husband is a taxi driver and trying his best to provide for his family's needs. But currently he is unable to generate any income from the taxi, as its engine is not working properly and needs to be repaired.

Zubaida, as a member of a five-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to pay for engine repairs for her husband's taxi. With the profit from the taxi, her husband wants to open a new auto mechanic shop. Zubaida wants to provide a quality education to all her children, and she prays for the good health of her family and for the growth of her husband's business. She is very thankful to BRAC for this opportunity.
