Sughra is 29 years old, and the responsible mother of 2 children. She lives in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband and children. Her husband is a janitor in a hospital. Since his salary is not enough to meet the household expenses, he would like to start his own business.

Sughra has requested a loan from Kiva’s partner BRAC Pakistan. Her husband will purchase a rickshaw using the loan amount and he will drive the rickshaw during the night while maintaining his present job. In this way he will increase the family's monthly income and he and Sughra will be able to send their children to school.

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