Rashid is 41 years old, and he lives in Lahore, Pakistan. He is a responsible father of three children. He is a rickshaw driver by profession. His rickshaw has not been working properly for the past many days. Because of this, he is unable to generate any amount of income. He wants to repair it, as soon as possible. However, due to a lack of money he finds it difficult to cover the cost of repairing the rickshaw. Therefore, Rashid has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to cover the cost of repairing his rickshaw. This will help him to continue his business. Rashid is so much thankful to Kiva.
