Shehnaz is a 35-year-old married woman who lives with her husband and daughter in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Her biggest dream in life is to marry her daughter into a good and respectable family. For eight years, Shehnaz's husband has been driving a taxi, which is the only source of income for his family. But for the last 20 days he has not been able to generate any income, as his taxi stopped working and needs to be repaired. Shehnaz has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to repair her husband's taxi so that he can continue his work. This will not only improve the taxi's condition, but will help in improving the family's income as well.
