Yasmeen is a 45-year-old lady living with her spouse and three children in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She is a responsible mother; her younger son goes to a school for tuition in the morning and in the evening everyday.

Her husband drives an auto rickshaw; he wants to grow his income so he can easily fulfill the basic needs of his family. So he decided to buy an additional rickshaw to earn a daily fair. He has much savings but the amount is still short. This is the reason Yasmeen requested a loan. She requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, BRAC Pakistan, so her husband can buy a new auto rickshaw.

She hopes that she would be able to earn enough savings until the time when her children get married. She thanks Kiva and its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
