A loan of $275 helped to pay for the repairs for her husband's taxi.


Saima's story

Saima is a 35-year-old married woman who lives with her husband and three sons in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her biggest dream in life is to give the best education to her children.

For 20 years Saima’s husband has been driving a taxi, which is the only source of income for his family. But for the last 20 days he has not been able to generate any income as his taxi stopped working and needs to be repaired.

Saima has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan, to repair her husband's taxi so that he can continue his work. This will not only improve the taxi's condition, but will help in improving the family's income as well.
