A loan of $225 helped to purchase a van.


Shaheen's story

Shaheen is a 37-year-old, hardworking housewife with four sons and three daughters, and is a resident of Rawalpindi, Pakistan. For the past five years, her husband has been driving a van, which is the only source of income for his family.

Shaheen has requested a loan from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan, to expand her husband's transportation business by buying a new van. They are saving money for this purpose, and with the addition of the loan amount, they would be able to buy this van.

This will not only help expand their transportation business, but will also help increase their monthly income. Shaheen is very hopeful that the loan will be productive so that they can meet the basic necessities of their family and provide education to their children.
