Najma's story

She has taken a loan for her husband’s rickshaw. In fact, his rickshaw is in need of repair due to continuous work. He earns very low money, which is insufficient to meet his daily household expenses.

Najma requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so that her husband can fix his rickshaw and drive it smoothly.

She wants marry of her daughter and is making savings. She hopes that this loan will affect her savings also.

Najma says thanks to Kiva and to its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
