A loan of $350 helped to buy spare parts to sell.


Saima's story

Saima is a 37-year-old married woman, living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She has four sons and three daughters. Her two sons are doing jobs as motor mechanics on daily wages. The condition of her house is not good, and the living standard of her family is miserable.

Saima requested a loan of 35,000 Pakistani rupees for her husband. Her husband owns a spare parts shop in which he sells motorbike spare parts such as silencers, fuel tanks, foot rests, wheels, tires, tubes, etc. Her husband also supplies spare parts to other shopkeepers with his rickshaw. Nowadays, his auto rickshaw is out of order due to overloading. Its engine needs some maintenance. Through this loan, her husband can easily fix the problem with his auto rickshaw. Saima hopes that one day the miserable condition of her family will change.

Saima is very thankful to Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
