Rehana is a 32-year-old married woman and the mother of four children. Her husband provides public transportation services using his three-wheeled rickshaw. He has been driving a rickshaw for many years to meet the family's expenses.

The rickshaw now needs some maintenance to keep it running smoothly. For this reason Rehana is applying for a 25,000 PKR loan through BRAC Pakistan for her husband. He wants to buy new tires and have some work done on the rickshaw’s engine. This will help him drive more smoothly and provide better service for his passengers.

Rehana is hopeful that this loan will be a productive one for her husband and bring positive changes to his business. She is very thankful for Kiva and its field partner BRAC Pakistan.
