Rukhsana is 53 years old and a hardworking and diligent woman. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband and three sons. Her husband and all of her sons are running a car decoration and accessories shop. This is the only source of income for her family. Currently they are facing many problems in the business because the current stock of car accessories is almost gone and they have no funds available to purchase more stock.

Rukhsana has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can continue his business and purchase a new variety of car accessories and decoration kits, like car chargers, fog lights, seat covers, neon lights, etc. With the profit amount she is going to make arrangements for the marriage of her son and for the expansion of their business. She is very hopeful that the loan will be a productive one for them, and she is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan for their help.
