A loan of $250 helped pay for the maintenance of her husband's auto-rickshaw.

Musarat's story

Musarat is living in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is an older member of BRAC Pakistan, who is taking her third loan. She has been improving her living standards with the help of the previous loans.

Two years ago, Musarat took a loan and purchased an auto-rickshaw for her husband, with the contribution of her savings. The current condition of the auto-rickshaw is not good because its engine is creating problems and not picking up fuel. Her husband's daily income is spent on household expenses and he does not have savings to fix the problem.

After completion of her previous loan, Musarat, again, contacted Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, and described her financial problem. With the help of a loan, her husband will fix the engine on the auto-rickshaw and he will be able to derive a reasonable income.

Musarat seems very happy after taking this loan and she says thanks to Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
