Rehana’s husband owns a metal shop in Lahore, Pakistan in which he sells sheets made of steel. His shop is located in the metals market, which is a very crowded place. He used to use a wooden hand trolley to carry his metal goods from one place to another, but his trolley is broken because it has been loaded and unloaded so many times. He wants to buy a new trolley but is unable to afford it. Rehana is requesting a loan from Kiva’s field partner BRAC Pakistan so that her husband can buy a new trolly. Rehana is 33 years old and the mother of three children. Her one son attends school daily.
She is very thankful to Kiva lenders for their support.
