Rukhsana is a 42-year-old, hard-working housewife. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband and three daughters. Her husband has been driving a taxi for 20 years and this is the only source of income for her family.

Right now, there is a lot of repairing and tuning work required in the engine of the taxi because it’s almost impossible for her husband to get some earnings from it. Rukhsana has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan, to repair the engine of her husband's taxi, so he can drive it properly. With the profit amount, her husband would buy one more taxi in the future.

Rukhsana desires to provide quality education to her children and she prays for the good health of her family and for the growth of her husband's business. She is very much thankful to BRAC Pakistan and Kiva.
