Maryam is a 28-year old married woman, who lives with her husband and three children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. Her husband owns a bike rental business where he rents out motorbikes to the general people. He has been doing this work for many years. It requires him to stay at the shop to deal with his customers. He wants to buy a new bike to meet demand but has not been able to purchase one due to the high cost.

This will be Maryam's first loan with Kiva, and she hopes that, with your cooperation, her husband will be able to carry out his plans. She promises to make his payments on time.

Maryam thanks Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
