Saba is a 25-year-old woman. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother to her three children. Her husband is a rickshaw driver by profession. For many days his rickshaw has not been working properly, so he has been unable to generate any income. He wants to repair it as soon as possible. However, due to lack of money, he finds it difficult to cover the cost of repairing the rickshaw. For this reason, Saba has applied for a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to help her husband cover the cost of repairing his rickshaw. This will help him to continue his business. Saba is very thankful to Kiva.
