A loan of $575 helped a member to buy a taxi.


Shazia Group's story

Shazia is a 40-year-old hard-working housewife. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan with her husband and one son. Her husband is a garment shop keeper by profession but his monthly income is not enough to fulfill the household expenses of his family. Therefore with the profession of security guard and three years of experience with driving he decided to drive a taxi at night. But due to lack of funds he is not able to buy a taxi. In this case Shazia, as a member of a three-person group, has requested a loan from Kiva partner BRAC Pakistan to meet the cost of buying a taxi. With the profits, her husband wants to open a new rent-a-car office in the future. Shazia desires to provide quality education to her son and she prays for the good health of her family and for the growth of her husband's business. She is very much thankful to Kiva and BRAC.
