Ruqaiya's Group's story

Ruqaiya, whose hand is raised in the picture, is 29 years old and lives in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is the mother of four children, whose needs are growing as they get older.

Her husband provides transportation services in his auto rickshaw. He has been doing this work for about six years. To carry out his work, he gets up very early to look for passengers on the streets of his city.

Her husband enjoys his work because he can manage his free time and have more time to spend with his family. In addition, he is able to obtain very good earnings. Now he feels tranquil and comfortable because he has a regular income and more free time.

This will be Ruqaiya’s first loan with Kiva. She will use it to buy spare parts, such as tires, tubes, bolts and a headlight for the maintenance of her husband’s auto rickshaw.

She hopes that, with your cooperation, her husband will be able to carry out his plans. She promises to make his payments on time.
