Yasmeen is a 40-year-old hard working housewife. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband and one son. Her husband has been driving a taxi from eight years and this is the only source of income for her family.
Right now there is a lot of repairing and tuning work required to the engine of the taxi because it’s almost impossible for him to earn income from it in the condition it is in. Yasmeen has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan to cover the amount of repairing the engine of her husband's taxi so that he can drive it properly. With the profit amount her husband would like to buy one more taxi in future.
Yasmeen desires to provide a quality education to her child 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 Pakistan and Kiva.
