A loan of $225 helped to purchase a rickshaw.


Saima's story

Saima is a 38-year-old responsible mother of three children. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband and children. Her husband is janitor in a hospital, but his salary is not enough to meet the household expenses. He wants to start his own work.

Saima has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner, BRAC Pakistan. Her husband would purchase a rickshaw from the loan amount, and he would drive the rickshaw at night along with his present job. In this way, his monthly income would be increased, and they would be able to send their children to school.

Saima is very hopeful for this loan, and she is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
