Shazia's story

Shazia is a 34-year-old, hard-working housewife with four sons and three daughters; she 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.

Shazia 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, 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.

She is very hopeful that the loan will be productive so that they can meet the basic necessities of their family, and provide an education for their children.
