Syeeda's Group's story

Syeeda is 40 years old and has four children whose ages are 15, 13, 11 and 9 years old. All of them have completed only up to their fifth year of middle school because Syeeda hasn't had many economic resources and hasn't been able to pay for their studies as they would have liked. Syeeda himself has only studied up to the fifth year of middle school. Her husband is a rickshaw driver, and he transports passengers through the streets of his city. He puts forth a lot of effort into his job and he works about 12 hours every day and attends to about 80 customers. He tells us that every day is a good day because he is able to return home with money for household costs, which gives Syeeda a little peace at the end of the day. He believes that his business is going well because he has a lot of faith in God and believes that God guides him. For this reason, he always has something to take home because he is honest, honorable and respects his customers.

Syeeda is actually very grateful for Kiva loan. This would be the first time that they have given her their support and with it she will be able to make improvements for her family. Her husband will buy new tires and change the seats on his rickshaw, and with these improvements, he will be able to improve his customers' comfort and thus obtain higher earnings. He hopes to be able to save enough to accomplish his dream: “To buy a furnished house”.
